Selection of Available Journals
Modern Drama is the most prominent journal in English to focus on dramatic literature. The journal features refereed articles written from a variety of geo-political points of view, both formal and historical, of the dramatic literature of the past two centuries; there is also an extensive book review section.
TDR: The Drama Review
TDR provides scholarship on performances and their social, economic and political contexts. With an emphasis on the experimental, avant-garde, intercultural and interdisciplinary, it covers dance theatre, performance art, popular entertainment, media, sports, rituals and performance in politics and everyday life.
Mimesis Journal gathers authors from different countries and generations concerned in contemporary theatre and performance. Its critical attitude is trans-cultural and trans-disciplinary, that is, not just historicising but mainly phenomenological. Published by Accademia University Press, the journal proposes twice a year articles written in Italian, French or English.
Theatre Survey is chartered by the American Society for Theatre Research as a theatre history journal. Its theatrical and historical orientations are broadly conceived. Performance-centered and historiographic studies from all points across the historical, cultural, and methodological spectra are welcome. Recent issues have included an article on the early professional deaf theatre in post-Stalinist Soviet Union, a study of the gestural vocabulary found in surviving images of early commedia dell'arte, a philosophical treatise by Alan Badiou, and an essay on the impact of neoliberalism—from the classroom to the department to the “global university”—that suggests how theatre and performance scholars might approach the political difficulties currently threatening the mission of higher education.
