Tracy C. Davis is Professor of Theater Studies at Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois.

With her publication "The Economy of the British Stage 1800", Tracy C. Davis managed to affect a change of perspective within the discipline of theater history, including that of the German-speaking community. Alongside her studies on the combination of theater and economic history, she has made a name for herself internationally in the areas of performance theory, European and American theater history, as well as through the development of new research methods.
