Dear IFTR Colleagues,
Members will be saddened to hear of the passing of theatre historian Thomas Postlewait who died on November 13th. Tom was a long-standing member of the Federation and an instrumental figure in the founding of the Historiography Working Group – a Co-Convenor of the Group when it was formalized in 1992. His scholarly contributions to theatre studies over many, many years were extensive and notably influential in establishing and evolving principles of theatre historiography. Tom will be sorely missed by international friends and colleagues in the Federation.
President of IFTR
(Notice arranged with the kind assistance of former President Willmar Sauter)
