EMOTHE research project - XML texts

The EMOTHE research project undertakes the study, editing and dissemination of the classical early modern European theatre, its texts and stage practices, understood as part of Europe’s cultural heritage, while incorporating the new techonologies of information and communication into the humanistic knowledge.

EMOTHE seeks to overcome the study of theatre restricted to national philologies (English, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese), opening up ways to a European cultural canon that is a shared heritage of all European citizens. The project does not aim to develop a theatre history but to place the texts of the European theatre, its translations, the history and memory of its performances, the data and documents that identify them, and the resources and strategies to know and study them, right in the centre of the European cultural system of references.
