Subject:        New Series on Early Modern Drama

Announcing a new series from Ashgate Publishing Company-Studies in
Performance and Early Modern Drama<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns =
"urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Series Editor:
Helen Ostovich, McMaster University

This series presents original research on theatre histories and
performance histories; the time period covered is from about 1500 to the
early 18th century.  Studies in which women's activities are a central
feature of discussion are especially of interest; this may include women
as financial or technical support (patrons, musicians, dancers,
seamstresses, wig-makers) or house support staff (e.g., gatherers),
rather than performance per se.  We also welcome critiques of early
modern drama that take into account the production values of the plays
and rely on period records of performance.

Proposals should take the form of either

1. a preliminary letter of inquiry, briefly describing the project; or
2. a formal prospectus including:  abstract, table of contents, sample
chapter, estimate of length, estimate of the number and type of
illustrations to be included, and a c.v.

Please send a copy of either type of proposal to both the series editor
and the publisher, at the addresses below:
