Archival research on the history of early drama in Northumberland, England, as part of the Records of Early English Drama series.
 

I seek a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship in order to continue my research in primary source documents for performances in Northumberland, England, from the earliest surviving manuscript evidence to the closing of the theaters by Parliament in 1642. The Records of Early English Drama (REED) Project has commissioned me to make a thorough search, to gather and edit all extant primary source documentary evidence of drama, minstrelsy, performance and public ceremony in England before 1642 from the private collections and public records offices throughout Northumberland, in archives that maintained an economic or political relationship with civic authorities or patrons in Northumberland, and in repositories to which records have been transferred. In addition to scholarly papers and articles that will be prepared throughout the course of this project, the end products will include the final hard copy volume of the REED series and a digital version of the Northumberland records.

Completion of an enhanced digital edition and book-length study that records and analyzes the intercultural exchange between an Algerian theater troupe and audiences in the United States.

In the humanities, intercultural exchange has been understood as a problem of translation not only between languages but also between cultures. I propose to explore problems of cultural translation, or the act of conveying one group’s history and experiences in terms that another group can understand. I do so via a study of an upcoming US government-sponsored tour by an Algerian theater troupe. The book follows the troupe from Algeria to the United States, showing how actors and audiences confront new views of their own and each other’s culture through theatrical performance. The book is envisioned as a multimedia work that will enable readers to experience (via embedded video) the events analyzed in the text as well as to explore links to primary research materials (such as theatrical scripts) that cannot be accessed via a traditional print book. The enhanced e-book is under contract with Indiana University Press.

In a three-part book, the first comprehensive study of music in pre-modern Ghent, I demonstrate that profound changes in European history occurred with unusual intensity there, with music an essential ingredient. A first part on the two Benedictine abbeys traces their music from Carolingian reforms to the adoption of the Roman liturgy at St. Bavo's, transformed into a cathedral. A second part assesses hundreds of records of benefactions for music in the virtually complete run of Ghent city council registers, with analyses of benefactors, their musical preferences, locations of performance, performers, and cost, and statistics showing the rise and fall in use of different music. This nearly complete reconstruction of church music in late medieval Ghent will be made freely available as an online interactive database. Part three describes the "soundscape" of the city's churches and streets, using local music identified in manuscripts or through archives.

In seeking to recover the voices of enslaved Africans in early North America, we are faced with shortcomings in the evidence generated by slaves. But in French colonies, the evidence from slave testimony mitigated this lacuna since, unlike English law, French law privileged confession and hinged on testimony as central to judicial procedure, so that slaves were called to testify exhaustively in court as defendants, witnesses and victims. Focusing on one of the richest repositories of extant trial records, from French colonial Louisiana, I make two major interventions. I argue that, far from seeing testimony as exclusively antagonistic and coercive, the enslaved seized the opportunity to voice their experiences of slavery and diaspora, producing an extraordinary corpus of autobiographical narratives. Second, I situate that evidence not just within the French Atlantic, but also within a global French empire that increasingly sought to centralize and standardize slavery and slave laws.

This project examines cases heard in Southern state courts between 1890 and 1930 in which judges and juries had to determine whether someone was white or black. At the start of legal segregation in the 1890s, most Southern states drew the color line with a variety of fractional rules--people with one-fourth, one-eighth or one-sixteenth "Negro blood" were legally black. By the 1920s, however, the "one-drop rule" prevailed--anyone with any African ancestry was black. The redrawing of the color line accompanied the transformation of the post-Civil War South into a segregated society devoted to maintaining absolute racial purity. Yet despite the hyperbolic fears of racial mixing that dominated the era, Southern state courts often showed great reluctance to alter the legal status of ostensibly white people. Courts made it relatively easy for people who looked white to sue if their racial backgrounds were questioned, and judges interpreted statutes and fashioned common-law rules in ways that often made it difficult to prove that someone who was ostensibly white was legally black. The courts' reluctance, I argue, was related to the evidence revealed in these cases that many people across the South who were socially accepted as white had African ancestry. Witnesses in these "color-line cases" unselfconsciously described how they worked, prayed with and married people who were rumored or known to have mixed ancestry. Courts recognized that unless they trod softly near the color line, their decisions risked destabilizing white communities. This history of the law and politics of the color line--and the lives lived in its shadow--is an untold story of racial ambiguity and acceptance that illuminates how for the past century Americans have defined themselves and ordered their worlds.

LADY MARY WROTH: "A SYDNEY THOUGH UNNAMED" will be the first critical biography of this remarkable seventeenth-century writer, the first English woman to write an original drama, the first to write a Petrarchan sonnet sequence, and the first to write a prose romance. Based extensively on primary evidence (e.g., letters, account books, dedications, parish records, wills, chancery records, and land grants) the biography will emphasize Wroth's literary heritage as a Sidney, her pioneering role in women's writing, and her active engagement with English and Continental politics. It will include new findings on her childhood, her marriage, the lives of her natural children William and Katherine Herbert, her later life, the date of her death, and the probable fate of her lost writings.

Research and writing leading to a book on physics and alchemy in the pan-Mediterranean Byzantine world (300-1400).

Theoretical speculation about the laws governing the transformation of matter has a long history in western Eurasia, stretching at least from the first millennium BCE to the present. My project traces the cultural impact of theories about nature by considering how medieval Muslim, Christian, Jewish, and Sabian (pagan) intellectuals writing in Greek and Arabic in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East from the fourth to the fifteenth century CE understood and valorized matter and its transformation. The resulting monograph will argue that Byzantine and Middle Eastern scholars cared about matter because it had come to be at the heart of the cosmic drama in which humankind was the protagonist. The authors of these texts and their audiences, I contend, were informed by a shared conception of the mechanisms by which matter could be transformed, and by the shared notion that a redemptive logic structures matter’s transformation.

After 38 years of highly respected hard-copy publications, the Records of Early English Drama is shifting its collections to free and open-access digital publication. The much-anticipated Civic London to 1558, 3 volumes (forthcoming April 2015), is the last volume to be produced primarily in hard copy. Over the past three years, REED has moved to born-digital collections, using digital formats to bring small and in-process collections quickly to the public, in searchable and interactive forms. A grant from the NEH will enable REED to begin to digitize existing collections, to complete editorial processing for two new collections, to begin the process on two further collections, and to continue the Pre-publication project, which allows editors to make records available as they are discovered.

Lafayette College seeks funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities to: 1) bring to born-digital publication two new collections of medieval and Renaissance dramatic records for the southern region of England: the counties of Berkshire, edited by Alexandra F. Johnston, and Hampshire, edited by Peter Greenfield and the late Jane Cowling; and 2) to prepare the Wiltshire collection, edited by Rosalind C. Hays and C.E. McGee for publication, with additional editorial work to be done for the Yorkshire North Riding collection, edited by David N. Klausner. These projects further demonstrate our commitment to editing collections produced as dynamic born-digital publications for open access online, a format that REED has been moving towards in deliberate steps during the past decade. With the recent digital pilot publication of the Staffordshire collection, edited by J.A.B. Somerset, this landmark goal will have been achieved by the proposed new grant period.

This project will edit and prepare for the publication of the London Inns of Court and Civil London to 1558 in the Records of Early English Drama.

University of Puget Sound requests NEH funding to support the Records of Early English Drama (REED) project's editorial office in editing and processing for publication two major collections of dramatic records--the London Inns of Court and Civic London to 1558--that significantly advance our understanding of medieval and early modern English drama. The Inns of Court collection provides evidence of dramatic activity ranging from performances of Shakespeare plays to entertainments mounted by the lawyers themselves. The Civic London to 1558 collection documents the dramatic activities of London's civic government and of its guilds and corporations, from private performances of plays to elaborate pageantry in the streets of the city. REED's editorial staff ensures the completeness and accuracy of the published collections and editorial apparatus, and provides essential support to online dissemination of results through the Patrons and Performances website.

Editing and preparation for publication in the Records of Early English Drama of three to four volumes for Civic London to 1558; preparation for electronic publication of the records of the counties of Staffordshire and Salisbury. (24 months)

During the past 37 years, the Records of Early English Drama (REED) project has published 27 collections in 33 print volumes of primary source documents that record theatrical performances from early modern Britain through the closing of the theaters in 1642. A grant from National Endowment for the Humanities would support the next phase of the project, enabling us: 1) to bring to publication three and possibly four volumes for Civic London to 1558, edited by Dr. Anne Lancashire; 2) to publish the next provincial collection, the county of Staffordshire, edited by Dr. J.A.B. Somerset; and 3) to prepare the Salisbury collection, edited by Dr. Audrey Douglas. The latter two projects will also reflect our commitment to editing collections that will be produced as dynamic born-digital publications for access online, a format that REED has been moving toward in deliberate steps for the past few years.

To support the preparation of a multi-volume edition of the Records of Early English Drama.

The Records of Early English Drama (REED) project is an established, well-reputed international collaboration whose purpose is to identify, transcribe, and publish records of early entertainment in the British Isles. Over the past eighteen years REED has published sixteen collections of records in sixteen volumes, some 9,287 pages of original data on drama, secular music, dance, and other forms of entertainment from its beginnings to 1642, the close of the theatres. Currently eighty percent of the remaining records have been collected, the majority of them by United States' collection editors, and await in-house editorial support for publication. This application requests NEH funding to support the REED Editorial Office at the University of Toronto, primarily the staff salaries which will see United States' editors' research to reputable, accurate, published fruition.
