Restoration and Eighteenth-Century Theatre Research
is a peer-reviewed, academic journal edited under the auspices of the department of English at Valdosta State University. The journal features scholarship on late seventeenth- and eighteenth-century British and European drama and staging. Issues contain articles, theatre reviews, book reviews, and occasional interviews.

RECTR was founded by Carl J. Stratman in 1962 at Loyola University, Chicago. In 1986, Douglas H. White became editor of RECTR, marking the beginning of the journal’s “Second Series.” RECTR was transferred to the University of Denver in 2001, where it was edited by Jessica Munns. Since 2013, RECTR has been edited by Anne Greenfield, and it remains co-edited by Jessica Munns.
