The conference offered discussions of the prodigious amount of dramatic and non-dramatic work that Miller produced in his stellar career.

The conference included a discussion of the artistic relationship between Arthur Miller and his wife Inge Morath, the world-renowned photojournalist.

The distinguished American Drama critic, Christopher Bigsby of the University of East Anglia, delivered the keynote address; Enoch Brater, the Kenneth T. Rowe Collegiate Professor of Dramatic Literature at the University of Michigan, delivered concluding remarks.

The conference also included panels of playwrights, theatre critics, actors, and directors. In addition, there were staged readings and performances of Miller’s work. The most exciting event was the world premiere staged reading of a new production of A View From the Bridge. This Muslim/Syrian version was directed by Brooke Ciardelli, the founding artistic director of Northern Stage in Vermont.
