ASODAT is a coordinated project by several research groups whose objective is to connect the information of different databases related to early modern Spanish theater and its documentation. ASODAT is the result of the conviction that connecting information among federated databases will contribute to allow for new discoveries related to this theatrical practice and draw critical attention to theatrical phenomena that are not visible on their own.
Our objective is for ASODAT to become a tool whose structure allows for the addition of other existing or new databases based on a protocol that we have created. In its current state, and after developing a specific computer architecture, ASODAT includes and organizes information from the following databases: CATCOM, which gathers and studies information on performances and establishes their relationship with specific plays and playwrights; CLEMIT, which catalogues and studies information on censorship and performance licenses present in plays; DMP, which offers information on the songs and dances that were part of theatrical texts; and MANOS, which catalogues and studies theatrical manuscripts and copyists.
In the next phase of the project, which will end in 2023, new groups and databases will be associated with the federation: ISTAE, that will incorporate a new database of single comedies; and the groups that hold the databases DICAT, ARTELOPE and EMOTHE.
