Theatre research online
Since 1994 we have seen the arrival of two immensely impressive internet-linked arts initiatives of importance to theatre researchers, both initiated through the offices of charismatic figures in the arts world – arts administrator, activist and playwright Mike van Graan’s Artslink network and Afrikaans novelist, mentor and theoretician Etienne van Heerden’s LitNet (now also in English). Both these initiatives have grown way beyond the original intention, bursting with categories, covering most literary and art forms and most theoretical perspectives.
The new millennium has seen a proliferation of similar internet-based information or documentation projects, including South African History Online (SAHO), the Arterial Network (an Africa-wide outflow of Artslink and **), *** and of course ESAT itself.
