This volume brings together a range of new and innovative research from postgraduate and early career researchers first at the 2012 cross-disciplinary conference, 'The Role of the Arts in History at Plymouth University.

Drawn from a broad range of disciplines, including Theatre and Performance, Art History, English, Music, Fine Art and History, the papers within this volume address two key questions:

• How do different arts and the study of them reflect the society and culture within which they were produced and examined?

• How can the study of the arts offer new insights into societies throughout history, up to and including the present day?

This volume engages with these questions in a variety of ways, both through the discussion of specific time periods or societies, and through the consideration of particular art forms. Collectively the contributors question, how do arts reflect the societies in which they were produced, and what is the value of art as a source of historical knowledge?
