"The State of the Field", June 1 – 18, 2021
The Mellon Summer School for Theater and Performance Research at Harvard University

The Bavarian American Academy (BBA) funded a PhD-student or a postdoc to participate in the Mellon School of Theater and Performance Research Summer 2021: "State of the Field" at Harvard University. In an intense two-week course of study, faculty members and graduate students from around the world convened at Harvard University to explore drama, theater, and performance from various historical and theoretical perspectives. 

With generous funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the English Department's Spencer Fund, and "Theater, Dance & Media," this summer school and all of its offerings were entirely free to participants. For travel and accommodation the BAA awarded a scholarship of €1,500.
