Medieval and Renaissance Drama in England is an international academic journal edited at Colgate. Each volume contains studies by literary critics and cultural historians, as well as substantial reviews, notes, and documentary studies.

About the Journal

Since it was founded in 1984, more than 500 articles, review essays, and book reviews have appeared on the journal's pages. The topics addressed have ranged from local drama in the Shrewsbury borough records to issues of staging in the Elizabethan playhouses to authorship studies of John Webster.

The journal is committed to the publication of a wide range of views and approaches, as well as to an equally wide exploration of early drama and its contexts prior to 1642.
