The Art of the Masque

Abstract: 
A project dedicated to the masque as it existed in Early Modern England. Currently under development.

The Art of the Masque is a project dedicated to the masque as it existed in Early Modern England. Although its influence can be found in opera and the multimedia entertainments of the 21st century, due to the complexity and occasional nature of the masque it has become a rarely performed and largely inaccessible form to most students and scholars today.

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.

REED - Patrons and Performances

Abstract: 
The REED Patrons and Performances Web Site is designed to include a wide range of data about professional performers on tour in the provinces – their patrons, the performance venues they used and the routes they took across the kingdom.

Professional performers of all kinds in England and Wales toured to provincial towns, monasteries and private residences before 1642. The Records of Early English Drama (REED) project is discovering fresh evidence about medieval and renaissance entertainment for publication in volumes for all English, Scottish and Welsh counties.
