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.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
