About the Series

The Working Paper Series “Developing Theatre” is part of the ERC Advanced Grant “Developing Theatre: Building Expert Networks for Theatre in Emerging Countries after 1945” (grant agreement No. 694559).

The working papers enable a pointed examination of theoretical and historical questions affecting the dissemination of the performing arts in a global context after 1945. They thus serve both the exchange of theoretical ideas and the development of conceptual foundations of the project. The goal of the short contributions is to present, critically examine and further develop theoretical concepts. The Working Papers, then, should not be understood as conclusive theoretical contributions, but rather as an invitation to exchange conceptual positions.
