Special Issue: Showcasing Opportunities
Co-Edited by Jill Stevenson and Mario Longtin

This volume consists of fourteen short essays, all tackling different aspects of drama observed through a variety of disciplines, theoretical perspectives, and/or methodologies. We asked contributors to begin their pieces by introducing a new critical approach, a new methodology, a specific problem in the field, or an operative link between disciplines that fosters productive connections. In some cases, this framing concept introduces a new concept, methodology, or theoretical approach to the field of early drama studies. In other instances, authors invite readers to reconsider an existing topic or theme from a new perspective. We further asked contributors to select one specific example from early drama and to analyze it critically, but briefly, in order to illustrate their framing concept. We encouraged authors to be bold and, in some cases, to leave questions unresolved. Consequently, this special issue of ROMARD aims to advance the study of early drama by capturing research and ideas in the making.

The journal aims to encourage the practice of commentary as a creative form of intellectual work and to provide a forum for dialogue and reflection on the past, present, and future of this ancient genre of writing. By aligning itself, not with any particular discipline, but with a particular mode of production, Glossator gives expression to the fact that praxis founds theory. GLOSSATOR.ORG
VISITORS TO THE PAST is not intended to give you a detailed map to the places featured within its pages, or give you suggestions to the best local cafes, shops or other trendy treats. The focus of this book is altogether different. The author wants you to step into the past, to meet the people associated with the monument you are visiting, and to see it in the context of the history of its time. Escaping the hustle and bustle of Rome to drive up the Via Nomentana to the Mausoleum of Santa Costanza, or winding ones way through the verdant fields of Frances Loire Valley to Germigny-des-Prs, the tourist is rewarded with exploring treasures of the past enjoyed in a tranquil setting. All quite satisfying and refreshing but not the whole tale. Behind the calm of today lie the turbulent passions of the pastlove, hatred, jealousy, envy, and all the emotions we know so well. The Mausolem of Santa Costanza, daughter of Constantine the Great (the first Christian Roman emperor), a woman born in a world of conflicting ambitions, vicious family feuds, betrayal and murder, may have been planned as a quiescent resting place for the dead. However, around it swirl the anything but tranquil realities of its time. Germigny-des-Prs was envisioned as a place of peace for a man of God. Yet the challenges of the timeintellectual, spiritual, and physical, never strayed far from the door. And so it goes. The five sites chosen for this book have great merits as seen today. But visitors to the past will find that this is only part of the story. So enjoy these experiences in the company of the historical figures abounding the pages of this book. Perhaps some knowledge of the past, of its people and events, will bring additional insight into the present. At the very least, your visits should provide you with more than a checkmark to indicate that youve been there on your busy itinerary.
