About the Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies collection and support
Stanford Libraries’ theater and performance studies collections support research and teaching related to drama, dance, and performance studies. Our collections include play texts, historical works, theater criticism, performance theory, guides to performance practices, as well as theater journals and online databases related to performance studies. Notable special collections include the Samuel Stark Theater Collection and the papers of playwrights David Henry Hwang and Jeannie Barroga. The curator of American and British Literature provides research consultations, instruction sessions for classes, and helps students and faculty access materials related to theater, dance, and performance studies.
