Abstract(s)
The first version of this article was the opening paper of the Prague Semiotic Stage Revisited Symposium in June 2011. It outlines the research project Czech Structuralist Thought on Theatre: context and potency, contextualizing it with current trends as well as the political and academic climate of the 1920s and 1930s. Several cases of contextualizing Prague Structuralism (its terminology, its political and intellectual standing, and its links) are used to illuminate the specificities of the theory and what has so far been neglected in its critical reassessment.
