ANPOLL – National Association of Graduate Research in Letters and Linguistics

Associação Nacional de Pós-Graduação e Pesquisa em Letras e Lingüistica - ANPOLL


Research in the Performing Arts did not emerge in a specific Brazilian Association before ABRACE was launched in 1999, but the field was vibrant at ANPOLL until then. Margie Rauen was a member of the Shakespearean Studies group (1991-1999) and later a founding member of the The Dramaturgy and Theatre Research Group  (1999-current).


The Dramaturgy and Theatre Research Group was launched by Margie Rauen (organizer) and 
Lygia Vianna Peres (first Chairperson) at the Fluminense Federal University, in Niterói, 1999.
