The ‘London stage’ should be interpreted as inclusively as possible, including such topics as criticism, dance, scenography, genre, theatrical technology, colonial politics, and the staging of the natural environment. Papers on sources, collections, and theatrical materials are also sought.
The panel for paper selection will be Michael Burden (Oxford), Jim Davis (Warwick), Jonathan Hicks (Aberdeen), Kate Newey (Exeter), and David Francis Taylor (Oxford).
