Interactive/Multimedia Ebooks

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 ebooks. The ebooks, 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 ebooks 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 ebooks are open-access, free to download: Medea, a performance history was published in April 2016 and Agamemnon, a performance history will appear in 2020. In addition, the project will produce an ebook creation toolkit to enable others to produce their own interactive/multimedia ebooks. The intial stage of the toolkit is also freely available under a creative commons licence: READ THE TOOLKIT HERE
