Read Laurence Irving's biography, HENRY IRVING, for some useful 
information. Have you visited Ellen Terry's house at Smallhythe in Kent 
(now managed by the National Trust)? See:

http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-vh/w-visits/w-findaplace/w-smallhytheplace/

I assume you have read Terry's autobiography, THE STORY OF MY LIFE.

What does the Oxford online DNB have to offer?

Good hunting.

The directory issue of PMLA (I stopped my membership when I retired from 
full-time teaching) used to contain a pretty full list of upcoming 
conferences. I see in the online version that it's not there any longer. 
Does anybody know if it has been supplanted, perhaps by some kind of 
online resource? If so, that would be a place for Courtney Glenny to 
look for upcoming meetings in the UK. There have, of course, been recent 
announcements on this list for British conferences.

Comment:	Re: SHK 18.0721 Ellen Terry

Well, I must be having a really bad day and I don't want to sound as if 
I am patronising a young graduate student, but I would have thought a 
moment's research (e.g. reading a few pages of any of the many excellent 
studies of Terry or searching for Terry on Google) would have shown that 
there is a major collection of materials on and by Terry (including 
costumes [with the recently-restored beetle-wing dress she wore as Lady 
Macbeth], her working copies of plays, and masses of her theatre 
memorabilia, etc etc etc) at the Ellen Terry Museum at Smallhythe in 
Kent, a collection which has been in the guardianship of the National 
Trust for nearly 70 years. Not exactly obscure information, is it? So, 
one obvious answer to Courtney Glenny's enquiry 'Is there a place in 
England I could go and research her letters/written work?' is Smallhythe.

You may find the book, Ellen Terry and Bernard Shaw: A Correspondence, 
by Terry and Shaw (Edited By Christopher St. John) (Author) helpful.

Courtney Glenny--

I suggest you do a thorough search of Dissertation Abstracts. Because 
she was well-known as Henry Irving's leading lady and Gordon Craig's 
mother, Terry may have been thoroughly covered in all aspects, and you 
may have difficulty finding something "original" to say.

Good luck.
