theater without boundaries

Theater Without Borders is a research collaborative which has been working together for about a decade to advance our knowledge of the transnational and comparative impact of Early Modern Drama.

Our goal is to bring together different methodological expertises (e.g., theoretical, archival, interpretive, theatrical), geographical specializations, and linguistic familiarities to create a greater whole than is represented by our individual fields.
