Drama 222 - Sources of World Drama

A road map for Sources of World Drama Essay Assignments

Journal Articles and EBooks

MLA Bibliography (1926-current)

Publications indexed by MLA focus on plays and films as texts, and on adaptations of literary sources; the focus is on critical interpretation rather than technical production.  One strategy is to search for keywords from the title of the play as well as the director's surname.


Multidisciplinary full-text magazines, newspapers and scholarly journals.  Use the filters provided on the results page to limit to peer-reviewed or scholarly journals.


Searchable full text of many scholarly journals. NOTE: Coverage ends 5 years prior to the current year so it is not a complete source for the most recent scholarship. Also contains many scholarly ebooks. 

Project Muse

Searchable full text collection of scholarly journals, including TDR and Theatre Journal. Contains the most recent years of many of the drama and theater studies journals in JStor, so it's a good supplement for more recent scholarship. Also contains many scholarly ebooks.
