Workshop on the Sociology of Theatre

The workshop aims to promote research in the sociology of theatre in Hungary.

There has been little research into the sociology of theatre in Hungary. The basic questionnaire (and its variants) developed by the earlier international STEP (Project on European Theatre Systems) research project did not focus primarily on social (e.g. demographic) data sets (which would be the task of classical theatre sociology), but on the group-level mapping of spectator experiences (thematic, aesthetic, communicative, contextual, identification) (using qualitative and quantitative tools).

In this workshop, we will discuss questionnaires as methodological guides for students and researchers, related methodological problems, contemporary theories in the sociology of theatre, research to date and the latest research with international experts, national academics and students. The workshop aims to promote research in the sociology of theatre in Hungary. The proceedings of the workshop will be published in the journal Uránia in Hungarian and English.
