‘Putting It Together’: Investigating Sources for Musical Theatre Research

‘Putting It Together’: Investigating Sources for Musical Theatre Research

The University of Sheffield, 10-12 May 2016

Research into the Broadway and Hollywood musical is now well established, with numerous scholarly monographs, journal articles and critical editions providing diverse but excellent methodological models for investigating the genre. With the resurgence of interest in revivals of “forgotten” musicals by companies such as Encores! and the establishment of series of books such as Oxford’s Broadway Legacies, studies of musicals have evolved to incorporate a plethora of materials and outputs, both scholarly and public.

This three-day conference seeks to interrogate the use of sources in research into musical theatre and film, covering interdisciplinary perspectives from musicology, film, theatre, media, information management, criticism and performance.
