[ecrea] New issue of Nineteenth Century Theatre and Film - Volume 45 Issue 1, May 2018

Thu Oct 18 22:06:28 GMT 2018


*Special Edition: Nineteenth Century Theatre and Film (SAGE)*

*The Actress-Manager and Early Film*

*Guest Editors: Victoria Duckett and Vito Adriaensens*

In this special issue we consider the range of roles and expertise theatrical actress-managers brought to film; the contemporaneous discourse that accompanied this move; and how their status and managerial position influence film production, direction and questions of authorship. Above all, we are interested in how female entrepreneurial engagement in new commerce, new markets and new forms of ‘theatre’ might help us interpret the rich and productive relationship between theatre and film. Articles include:
