About this book

This collection of essays explores how historians of theatre apply ethical thinking to the attempt to truthfully represent their subject - whether that be the life of a well-known performer, or the little known history of colonial theatre in India - by exploring the process by which such histories are written, and the challenges they raise.

Reviews

“There are well-crafted and provocative essays here, and the foregrounding of ethical questions makes the volume a potentially useful companion to other anthologies … . The collection will be of interest to postgraduate students and scholars of theatre history, and some essays could be assigned to advanced undergraduates.” (David Calder, Contemporary Theatre Review, Vol. 28 (1), 2018)

“The focus of the present collection is, as signaled by the subtitle, squarely on ethics and evidence … . they are held together by an impressively coherent and sustained engagement with a set of ethical challenges posed by the alterity of theatre-historical evidence. This volume firmly establishes ethics on the theatre-historiographical agenda.” (Christopher Balme, Theatre Notebook, Vol. 71 (1), February, 2017)
