Margarita Gromova archive

The archive contains materials owned by the philologist, professor, and author of a number of textbooks on Russian dramaturgy Margarita Gromova. She collected them over more than three decades as part of her seminar on contemporary dramaturgy at Moscow State Pedagogical University (formerly Lenin Moscow State Pedagogical Institute). The seminar was distinguished by the fact that, as well as focusing on works by well-known authors, it covered those representatives of the theatrical world whose practice attracted the interest of critics and academics much later than their works were actually staged. This allowed Gromova to preserve rare documents that can be used to track Russian documentary theater and other movements in the 1990s and early 2000s. It also features first drafts of plays discussed at festivals and her personal photo archive. As well as posters, flyers, invitations to performances, and other ephemera, Gromova also partially preserved her students' term papers, most of which include valuable illustrative and bibliographical materials about dramaturgy and contemporary poetry.
