This overview of the state of the field in medieval and early drama studies reviews seven monographs published between 2019 and 2021 in English on English, French, and Italian drama written and/or performed up until the seventeenth century. This overview tracks several key patterns that characterize these monographs and represent the state of the field, most notably, a continued commitment to the tradition of archival research working in tandem with innovative applications of literary and cultural theory. Lastly, this review looks ahead and asks where the field might be heading, pointing to recent and forthcoming publications on race, disability theory, and the global Middle Ages.
