Ibsen Between Cultures: The Australian Experience (ARC Discovery Project administered by Flinders University) (2009–2011)

This project secures Australia's role in a major international research project, which will investigate the extraordinary intercultural success of the plays of Henrik Ibsen, one of the world's major playwrights and the father of modernist theatre. The research will generate new knowledge about the origins of Australia spoken word drama; the global mechanisms governing the interweaving of cultures in the production of theatre; and the major political, social, economics, and technological changes responsible for transporting Ibsen's plays, particularly A Doll's House, across five continents for over a century. This project will build on the CI's successful history of collaborative research.
