Reissue as free epubs 18 foundational books in dance and theater

The digitization and creation of freely-accessible ebooks for 18 essential texts from Wesleyan University Press on the history of dance and theater.

Wesleyan University Press will digitize eighteen out-of-print titles from its performing arts backlist. These titles fall into two discreet but related areas, dance and theater (specifically stagecraft), and contribute to an understanding of the evolution of modernism in the performing arts. The Press will make the resulting ebooks freely available for the benefit of scholars in dance, theater and performance studies. We will promote the ebooks individually and as a group to scholars and students in dance, theater and performance studies. We will market the ebooks via email, social media, press releases, and on our web site where we will have permanent pages for each ebook as well as a page for the project, including instructions for accessing the free ebook files.
