Interactive/Multimedia e-books

The APGRD is delighted to have received an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Follow-On Funding Award (AH/M008762/1) to produce two interactive/multimedia e-books. The e-books, on the performance histories of Medea and Agamemnon, draw on our existing published research, considerably enhanced by our photographic, audio and video archival material as well as newly commissioned interviews and performances from scholars and theatre practitioners. The e-books are designed to appeal to a greater variety of audiences from across the globe – in schools, universities, in the creative industries and amongst the wider public. 

Both e-books are free to download, Medea, a performance history was published in April 2016 and Agamemnon, a performance history will appear in 2017. In addition, the project will produce an e-book creation toolkit to enable others to produce their own interactive/multimedia ebooks. The intial stage of the toolkit is freely available under a creative commons licence: READ THE TOOLKIT HERE
