The Early English Drama and Performance Network
...is a new resource for scholars, students, and practitioners of medieval and Tudor drama and performance. The Network seeks to promote this field of study by bringing together researchers from multiple disciplines (including drama, dance and performance studies, literature, music, and art history), facilitating cross-disciplinary, cross-period dialogue and acting as a central hub for the community on the internet.
The Network’s website acts as a conduit for the latest news on research, publications, performances and conferences. There are also pages dedicated to upcoming events, funding and useful links, as well as a list of scholars from around the world who are currently working in the field.
There has already been considerable interest in the site; we now have over 230 followers worldwide and have received over 1000 views since launching the site in February. As the Network grows we will be able to create new features, connect researchers from various disciplines and open up some exciting new directions for research in medieval and Tudor performance.
