Using theories of circulation to analyze the development of European secular and religious drama, scholars of early modern literature explore relationships between tradition and innovation, the status of genre, the proportion of autonomous and heteronomous creational dispositions within given artefacts or within genres, and the strategies of functionalization in the context of a given part of the cultural net. Among their topics are American presidential candidates at the Court of Charles V: how political theory trumped political theology in 14th-century Paris; cross-cultural inventions in drama on the basis of the novel in prose, or world literature before world literature: the case of Fortunatus; Luigi Groto's Adriana: a laboratory experiment on literary genre; play institutions: social and textual practices in early Spanish academies; and the role of music in folk drama: an investigation based on Tyrolean sources.
