GTH Journal (2, 2019) out now – Focus on Philanthropy and Developing Theatre

article_5120_cover_de_DEThe second issue 2019 of the Journal of Global Theatre History is now available online. It is dedicated to the theme Developing Theatre and Philanthropy and gathers contributions from Christopher Balme, Jan Creutzenberg and myself. All three articles address case studies of promoting theatre practice and education through the Rockefeller Foundation in the 1950s and 1960s. Christopher Balme writes about expert networks, philanthropy and theatre studies in Nigeria, 1959–1969; Jan Creutzenberg illuminates the support of Yu Chi-jin and the Seoul Drama Center in Seoul, Korea. My article, “The Rockefeller Roundabout of Funding” focuses on the promotion of Filipino theatre maker and playwright Severino Montano, who, inspired by the Rockefeller Foundation, founded an institute for theatre education in Manila, the Arena Theatre at Philippine Normal College.
The GTH Journal is an open access journal published by the Centre of Global Theatre Histories with Nic Leonhardt and Christopher Balme as its editors in chief. I would like to thank Gwendolin Lehnerer for her assistance in editing this issue. GTH Centre Logo Jan 2017
