Two Important New Drama Projects EARLY DRAMA, ART, AND MUSIC Sponsored by the Medieval Institute of Western Michigan University, EARLY DRAMA, ART, AND MUSIC is a project focusing on interdis­ ciplinary study of drama of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Primarily the project will stress relationships between the visual arts and the drama, though plans also include attention to musical iconography and study of musical records as these are relevant to drama and theater. The core of the project will be two series of monographs, one of which will be entirely devoted to reference works (bibliographies and subject lists of regional art from centers of dramatic activity). The second series will present scholarly and critical works of importance. Procedures for the preparation and use of the bibliographies and subject lists will be set forth by the executive editor, Clifford Davidson, in May 1977 in a guide entitled Drama and Art. The reference series will be inaugurated by a volume devoted to York which will establish the format for all subsequent volumes containing bibliographies and lists of art, both extant and lost. In addition, jthe project will involve extension in two directions. First, computer pro­ gramming will be used to record and control information about English and continental examples of art relevant to drama. Second, facilities for the collecting, cataloguing, and storage of photographs and slides are contemplated as soon as funding is achieved. Eventually, the project will bring together resource material at a location convenient for the establish­ ment of an international center for study in this area.
