Theatre Histories (print) by Alan Filewod and Ric Knowles

Volume 13 in the series Critical Perspectives on Canadian Theatre in English

“Released from the ordinate systems that charted theatre history as a process of development in an evolving joint narrative of national culture and national repertoire, researchers have effectively inverted the premise that established their discipline. Instead of investigating how the nation has produced theatre, they ask instead how theatre produces the nation. The result has been a shift from macroscopic narratives to situated mappings of the cultural meanings of theatre.” —from the introduction
