      ii) to pursue a scholarly investigation through monographs which could include either an overview of a particular playwright and a critical analysis of his/her plays or a study of a grouping in drama and theatre including writers for performance within a unifying framework;
      iii) to illustrate and personalise the study of drama and theatre within Australia and overseas, especially for students.

      'Each monograph provides an in-depth study aimed at furthering knowledge of Australian drama and therefore Australian culture with reference to primary and secondary sources.'
