Themes in Theatre

Collective Approaches to Theatre and Performance

Series Editor: Peter Eversmann
Themes in Theatre is a platform for contemporary issues and current scholarship within international theatre studies. Monographs are not considered for this series; it aims at volumes that are characterised by a high level of interconnectedness – each author clearly contributing to a central subject within the field of theatre and performance.

Both diverse and interdisciplinary, the series furthers works which reflect on a variety of concepts and methods and which explore topics at the forefront of theatre research. Therefore, Themes in Theatre is not limited to any specific ‘-ism’, theatre genre, approach or methodology. As long as academic standards are met and the collectivity of the work is ensured, we welcome historical, critical, theoretical, and analytical discussions on the theatrical arts.

Themes in Theatre is published in association with the International Federation for Theatre Research. Scholars who are no members are also welcome to submit a proposal for a themed volume.
For information on the IFTR, its working groups and yearly conferences, please see the website:

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals for collected volumes to the publisher at BRILL, Christa Stevens.
