The American Society for Theatre Research (ASTR) is a U.S.-based professional organization that fosters scholarship on worldwide theatre and performance, both historical and contemporary.
Members of the American Society for Theatre Research say the Society is a space to share scholarship and a home for networking within the profession.
At ASTR’s annual meeting this past Saturday, Heather Nathans completed an impressive three-year term as President. As current and outgoing Officers and Executive Committee members, we want to acknowledge Heather’s extraordinary service publicly and thank her for leading us through a particularly eventful time in ASTR’s history.
When Heather agreed to run for President, we suspect she had no idea that her term would coincide with Nancy Erickson’s departure and the search for a new Executive management team. Yet, without hesitating, Heather helped the organization move through this transition purposefully and thoughtfully, and Ewald's exceptional work is testimony to Heather’s skill in finding ASTR a collaborative team that supports its mission.

Digital Research and Scholarship (DRS) serves as a resource for ASTR members interested in the application of digital technologies to the study of theatre and performance. Resources are designed to serve both those scholars active in the field of digital humanities as well as those new to digital methodologies or who may be curious to know what it may afford their own research, scholarship, and teaching. The DRS includes updated resources in digital tools and methods, discussions, and opportunity to showcase current projects by ASTR members.
