"Reading Paratext: the Economies of 19th-Century Play Publishing" Due 5/30 (Conference 11/11)

updated: 
Thursday, May 5, 2011 - 10:31pm
American Society for Theatre Research (ASTR)

This alternative-format session is a contemplative "show and tell" in which panelists discuss the same 4 examples of 19th century playscript paratext, the "extra" printed matter around the playtext: title-page, catalogue, advertisement, and character list. Exploring how paratext can open new angles on cultural and economic contexts, the session borrows the model of historical-structural scrutiny in Gerard Genette's influential study, Paratexts, for the case of playscripts, and builds on studies of the intersections of theatre and publishing (J.S. Peters, D.S. Kastan, W.B. Worthen).
