11-Apr-11 - NEW! Cambria Studies in Contemporary Theatre and Drama by Professor John Clum (Duke University)

The Cambria Studies in Contemporary Theatre and Drama calls for monographs on any aspect of contemporary theatre:

1. Edited anthologies of plays by a particular author, from a particular country, or focusing on a particular subject. These collections should begin with a critical introduction to the works selected and include biographical material on each playwright and a bibliography.

2. The economics of theatre in a particular culture.

3. The relationship of theatre to society in a particular culture. We are particularly interested in books that address the central question of what the function of theatre is for a particular culture. Who goes to the theatre? Is theatre being used to effect political or social change in any culture? Is there any viable countercultural theatre?

4. Theatre and current social and political issues.

5. Drama and other media. We are interested in studies of television drama as well as staged drama. Is the internet a viable medium for drama?
