A series of conferences on theatre research were held with the following specific goals: (1) to establish the limits of the major areas of theatre research and to determine the nature of the several theatre disciplines; (2) to arrive at preliminary statements affecting methodologies, areas of specialization, research materials, centers of research activity, and fundamental conditions for research activity; (3) to initiate discussions which would lead to more general and more formal standards for theatre research; and (4) to publish and disseminate a collection of papers about the nature of research in the major theatre disciplines. The eight chapters of the document are as follows: I. Introduction: History and Procedure of the Conference; II. Historical Backgrounds to University Research in Theatre; III. Consensus of Conference Opinion on Research Areas; IV. Behavioral Science Research and Theatre; V. The Teaching of Theatre: A Challenge to Education; VI. Research in Theatre Architecture and Design; VII. Research in Theatre History; and VIII. Theatre Literature and Criticism. Appendix A presents 15 selected papers, and Appendix B lists the members of the conference and their positions. (DB)
