Dr. Cecilia Feilla of English and World Literatures is set to present her research, Crypts, Corpses, and the Living Dead in Revolutionary Melodrama, at the 2018 ‘Last Scene of All’ conference at Oxford University.

Sponsored by the The Oxford Centre in the Humanities (TORCH) and the Modern Humanities Research Association (MHRA), this conference will bring together researchers working on death, dying and the dead on stage, across different countries, genres and time periods, in order to explore the many ways in which the ‘last scene of all’; common to all cultures and individuals, is depicted, negotiated and exploited by writers and practitioners in that very human, bodily form that is theatrical performance.

The topics to be explored range from the theoretical, to the literary, to the intensely practical. For a more in-depth look at the various presentations, check out the conference abstract

Break a leg, Cecilia!
