Lecturer in music, Jo Hicks, will be co-editing a new book series with Boydell & Brewer entitled "Nineteenth-Century British Theatrical Culture"
This new series will publish original and innovative studies, typically located at the intersection of research in theatre and music, history, science, the visual arts, the press, performance, and politics. Topics will range from high cultural relationships between art and theatre to popular forms such as pantomime or melodrama. The series editors encourage a broad approach to theatrical culture, embracing studies of amusements and entertainments such as panoramas, dioramas, and peep shows as well as dance, circus, pleasure gardens, and opera.
Nineteenth-Century British Theatrical Culture, by its very nature, will be both an interdisciplinary and a cross-disciplinary series – a home for ambitious work that puts British theatre on the global stage. It invites and encourages submissions from the western academy and the post-colonial world. The series editors and Publishers welcome enquiries relating to potential monographs, edited collections, and shorts (short books, approx. 40k words), as well as Open Access titles.
