// Présentation

Consacrée à la publication d’études sur le théâtre du Moyen Âge et de la Renaissance européens – et d’abord anglais – ainsi que sur la culture qui le nourrit, la collection « Theta » se veut lieu de rencontre et de débat, accueillant toutes les approches mais privilégiant des questions de mise en scène, de représentation et de techniques dramaturgiques.

Primarily meant to host studies of the drama of the English—and European—Middle Ages and Renaissance, as well as the culture in which it is rooted, the « Theta » series aims to be a forum of exchange and debate. All approaches are welcome, but a special emphasis is placed on issues of staging, representation and techniques of performance.
