Theatre Historiography

Historiography is the study, not only of the historical record, but the process of writing history. Theatre historiography studies how histories of the theatre are constructed and also generates new histories. When we speak of “histories of the theatre,” we refer to the histories of performance practice as well as the body of plays, criticism, theory, dramaturgical writings, and other fragments that survive in archives or record books.
