New Section: ‘Research’

In addition to the main database, we have added a new ‘Research’ section to the website. In this section we will be posting texts, graphics and other forms of multi-media scholarship that serve to further the mission of the Rolecall project. The first addition to the ‘Research’ section is Female Speech: A Timeline, through which users can observe the chronological changes in female speech in the theatre of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Europe.
