Welcome, drama students and professors!

This guide highlights our library's resources related to drama. Let us know how we can help you with your research!

  • Drama: Information from many encyclopedias
    A wealth of drama articles from a wide variety of encyclopedias. Great for getting started. Everything from "Dram in African American History and Culture" to "Types of Greek Drama!"
  • Drama History Resources: Arts and Humanities Through the Ages
    Great overviews of drama during specific historical periods over many cultures.
  • The Cambridge Guide to Theatre
    "Offers a wealth of information on the history and present practice of theatre in all parts of the world. Written by a team of international experts, it clearly depicts the dynamic interaction of performance traditions from all cultures in present-day theatre. While saluting the history and traditions of 'high' art in the theatre, the Guide also celebrates the importance of 'low' art: the energy and animation that has infused popular theatre and popular entertainment for thousands of years."
  • Shakespeare's Theatre: A Dictionary of His Stage Context
    "Reviews current knowledge of the character and operation of theatres in Shakespeare's time, with an explanation of their origins. Coverage includes the practices of Elizabethan actors and script writers: methods of characterization; gesture, blocking and choreography, including music, dance and fighting; actors' rhetorical interaction with audiences; and use of costumes, stage props, and make-up."
  • Chambers Film Factfinder
    "A collection of useful and often fascinating information on many aspects of film, from the early days of silent cinema to the twenty-first century."
  • Gale Virtual Reference Library
    Gale Virtual Reference Library contains college-level subject-specific encyclopedias; good starting point; get an overview of a topic and identify some keywords you can use to search for articles.
