The articles collected in this volume have come out of the 18th international CDE conference (Vienna, 2009) and set out to examine how contemporary drama and theatre in English engage in the discourse of interculturality. Apart from autobiographically-oriented keynote lectures by playwrights Tanika Gupta and Simon Stephens these papers address the themes of interculturality and multiculturalism across a wide range of topics, ethnicities, and methodologies. They deal not only with the obvious themes of ethnic encounters and intercultural conflicts but also with issues of hybridity, globalisation, immigration, and the diaspora experience.
