eREED

Abstract: 
eREED is an initiative that is working towards creating a digital editing and publication environment for the dissemination of the collections of the Records of Early English Drama (REED) series.

The REED series consitutes a massive, richly-annotated dataset on entertainment (and related activity) in print. The print format of the REED series has locked that data into a fixed structure that limits its potential as a research resource. With each new published collection, the ability to effectively analyze the REED corpus diminishes, since it is trapped within a series of print silos, each of which needs to be queried separately via individual indexes.

Early Modern London Theatres (EMLoT)

Abstract: 
A resource that examines pre-1642 documents related to professional performance in purpose-built theatres and other permanent structures in the London area, and how these documents have been used in the proceeding four centuries.

REED's Early Modern London Theatres (EMLoT) is a research database and educational resource that lets you see what direct use has been made, over the last four centuries, of pre-1642 documents related to professional performance in purpose-built theatres and other permanent structures in the London area. It is not a comprehensive collection of those pre-1642 documents; rather, it charts the copies (or ‘transcriptions’) which were subsequently made of them.

The Juba Project: Early Blackface Minstrelsy in Britain, 1842-1852

Abstract: 
Named after early minstrelsy's most famous and most unusual early practitioner, the Juba Project includes a collection of historical texts, images, songs, and contemporary responses, all related to minstrelsy.

White performers in blackface make-up were performing in supposed imitation of American slave culture long before 1842. But in that year these entertainers began appearing together as groups in stand-alone entertainments, minstrel shows. Originating in the north-eastern United States, they almost immediately traveled to Britain, where they were particularly popular.
