Description

The Routledge Handbook of Reenactment Studies provides the first overview of significant concepts within reenactment studies. The volume includes a co-authored critical introduction and a comprehensive compilation of key term entries contributed by leading reenactment scholars from Europe, North America and Australia. Well into the future, this wide-ranging reference work will inform and shape the thinking of researchers, teachers and students of history and heritage and memory studies, as well as cultural studies, film, theatre and performance studies, dance, art history, museum studies, literary criticism, musicology and anthropology.
