Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism 2015

CFP – Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism

The Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism seeks full-length article
submissions for future issues.

For almost 30 years, JDTC has dedicated its pages twice a year to a range ofarticles and essays related to paradigms useful in dramatic theory and
criticism; innovative explorations of praxis that raise questions about
theatre, drama, or performance; and reflective essays, interviews, or
dialogues that examine an author or a theoretical/ critical discourse within
our widening field of theatre and performance.  As we move toward 2016, we
welcome scholarship that provides new, critical insight into theatre praxis,
past and present, particularly explorations that interrogate the relationship
between theatre, historiography, and cultural memory, including—but not
limited to—theatre practices in the Americas.
