Theatre History and Historiography

The Theatre History and Historiography group is dedicated to the exploration and investigation of theatre history using the methodologies and approaches developed in recent years by the New Theatre Historiography movement. The purpose of this group is to discuss work in progress, closely analysing the ways in which evidence, documentation, interpretation, theory and speculation contribute to theatre history today and open up new and provocative questions about the way we explore the theatrical past on both macro- and micro-levels. We welcome new and experienced scholars with an interest in these concerns to participate in the annual TaPRA Conference as part of the group, and to attend the other events we hold each year.
