Schmitz-Emans: Zeitungstheater

Monika Schmitz-Emans, former member of the ICLA theory committee, published the book Zeitungstheater: Über Bühnen und Akteure von Humorblättern und Comicbeilagen um 1900. Available at Wehrhahn Verlag, the book traces the influence of popular theater forms on late-nineteenth-century satirical magazines in English and German. It shows how the turn to the spectacular played itself out in graphic narratives as the turn from the mise-en-page to the mise-en-scène.
