The Journal for Ancient Performance

Didaskalia is a peer-reviewed electronic journal dedicated to the study of all aspects of ancient Greek and Roman performance. Didaskalia is committed to open access and the free dissemination of scholarship.

Medea, a performance history is the first interacdtive/multimedia ebook from the University of Oxford's Archive of Performances of Greek and Roman Drama (APGRD). The ebook draws on a unique collection of archival material and research at the APGRD and uses images, film, audio and newly commissioned interviews and digital objects to explore the rich production history of Euipides' Medea, a controversial play that has inspired countless interpreations, onstage and onscreen, in dance, drama and opera across the globe from antiquity to the present. The APGRD arre delighted to be collaborating with members of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in providing training and advice to their students, who are producing their own eBook on Antigone, inspired by the APGRD's Medea eBook.

Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the APGRD's ebook is free to download either from iTunes (Medea, a performance history iBook), or as an EPUB from the APGRD website (Medea, a performance history EPUB3). The APGRD's second interactive/multimedia ebook, Agamemnon, a performance history, will be available soon.
