This series, which publishes scholarship on the historical contexts of theatre and cultural performance, features a full spectrum of historiographical methods and perspectives. Topics have encompassed a wide range of fields, including Ancient Greek theatre, the American chautauqua, Southeast Asian performance, Yiddish theatre, representations of race, gender, and ethnicity onstage, Shakespeare in performance, marionettes, ritual theories of performance, theatricality and antitheatricality. We are particularly interested in works that explore histories of race, gender, sexuality, class, and ethnicity in performance, and we encourage submissions that bring a creative approach to these fields.
Leading scholars from many countries, including the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, Germany, South Africa, Sweden, Russia, Israel, India, and Australia, have published in the series. Books in the series have won many awards, including the Barnard Hewitt Award from the American Society for Theatre Research, the Theatre Book Award of the Society for Theatre Research, the Research Award in Theatre Practice and Pedagogy from the Association for Theatre in Higher Education, the Joe A. Callaway Prize, and the George Freedley Award from the Theatre Library Association.
