Graduate Seminar in Theatre Studies at Keio University

About us

We, members of the seminar of Theatre Studies at the Graduate School of Letters at Keio University, investigate theatre and opera performances in Europe/Germany and Japan to find out various and sometimes unknown relations of theatre art and society. The seminar is open to graduate school students, scholars and professors who discuss each topic and theme which they continuously research.
We are active in international research and discussions: The scholars and the graduate students from Europe regularly join our seminar with their new themes and topics and discuss them intensively, while we attend the conferences in Europe and Asia and bring up our themes and topics for discussion. These activities broaden our vision for the variety of theatre and its studies from all over the world.
We publish the results of our researches in Japanese, German and English papers and books and report our activities on this website.
