Published in association with the International Federation for Theatre Research (IFTR), this series is a platform for innovative scholarly work that takes seriously the pledge of the international. We ask: what promise does this term hold for Theatre and Performance Studies today? First coined in the late eighteenth century to define a space for inter-state relations, the term has since migrated from law to political and cultural practice, retaining connotations of an ever-expanding, progressive vision of global cooperation. Theatre and Performance Studies have long pursued the promise of the international, from re-thinking “national” canons to developing novel theoretical and methodological foundations for the study of theatre and performance. The series publishes both monographs and edited volumes that represent and at the same time critically interrogate these very processes. We thus invite submissions that examine the evolving diversity of performances from Eurasia, Africa, the Americas, and Oceania. We seek to become an intellectual home to manuscripts that contain an overtly international or transnational dimension, explore new historical, methodological and geographical frontiers, and address pressing contemporary concerns.
