La Boite's history as doctoral study: A research methodology story
Comans, Christine A. (2006) La Boite's history as doctoral study: A research methodology story. NJ Drama Australia Journal, 30(2), pp. 73-82.
How does a researcher make sense of and give scholarly shape to an Australian theatre company's seventy-eight years of history? That was my dilemma when faced with the topic I was determined to pursue as my doctoral study – the history of La Boite Theatre Company from its beginnings as a repertory society in 1925 to 2003. The following article gives insight into my quest as researcher to find the most appropriate research methodology to support such a long and varied history and to allow the key question of my study to be answered.
