Annual volume with contributions on writers and artists whose work intersects with Brecht's from three thematic perspectives: Brecht in a global age, women and Brecht, and Brecht's learning plays.
Published for the International Brecht Society by Camden House, the Brecht Yearbook is the central scholarly forum for discussion of Brecht's life and work and of topics of particular interest to him, especially the politics of literature and of theater in a global context. It, like Brecht himself, is committed to the concept of the use value of literature, theater, and theory.
This is the second volume dedicated to the proceedings of the 16th Symposium of the IBS, held at Leipzig University in 2019. The contributions discuss artists whose work intersects with Brecht's from three thematic perspectives: Brecht in a global age, women and Brecht, and Brecht's learning plays. The artists include Utpal Dutt, Elisabeth Hauptmann, Elfriede Jelinek, Peter Konwitschny, Siegfried Kracauer, Tom Kühnel, Jürgen Kuttner, Heiner Müller, Rimini Protokoll, Margarete Steffin, Teatro Due Mondi, Teatro Máquina, Tom Tykwer, and Hella Wuolijoki. The articles cover a broad range of genres and topics, such as crime and detective fiction; neo-noir television series; the learning play according to and after Brecht; theater pedagogy; the migration dilemma; and post-dramatic, refugee, and transcultural theater.
