|The database is the result of a
cooperation project between the Department of Japanese Studies,
Trier University (Germany) and the Tsubouchi Memorial
Theatre Museum, Waseda University (Japan). While project
members at Trier University were responsible for creating the first
version of the research guide, the Waseda team contributed additional
items and developed the final draft.
This database is a digital
research guide to the journal Nôgaku, the first specialized
journal on Nô-Theatre published from July 1902 (Meiji 35)
until April 1921 (Taisho 10). The articles cover a wide range of
topics in various fields of the humanities related to classical
theatre. As a research tool for scholars from Japan and overseas,
keywords are given in English and names of authors in both Japanese
and English transcription. For a list of keywords, including personal
names, titles of plays, titles of publications about Nô and
related subjects, see [link].
