For the 2012 conference of the American Society for Theatre Research (ASTR), we seek papers for a Working Group entitled "Eighteenth-Century Theatrical Histories, or, the Long, the Deep, and the Wide." Long, deep, and wide are three descriptive words often associated with 18th century studies, and nodding to the theme of the conference we want to explore how these words might help "cast" the theatrical history of the 18th century we construct.
