CFP - Deadline Extended to October 1

16 September, 2014

We are excited to announce that the deadline for submission for our first volume has been extended from September 15 to October 1! 

Etudes aims to publish two peer-reviewed editions annually, but is also interested in providing an ongoing forum for works in progress, non-traditional research, networking, advising, and general positivity that can be the key to sanity in the early years of our careers in academia.  We believe:

  • Success builds on success
  • Success builds on community
  • Each scholar has her/his own performative, unique voice
  • That voice should be heard, not drowned out by traditions and 'shoulds'
  • Scholarship need not be dry to be rigorous

Call for Papers

Etudes is a new online theatre and performance studies journal for emerging scholars, dedicated to the unique voice of the individual scholar.  In this, our first call for papers, we invite the submission of scholarly manuscripts, media, performance reviews, creative work, manifestos, etc. covering any range of topics within the theatre and performance studies realm.  We highly encourage works of performative writing and academic playfulness.  This is a place to try things out, take some risks, and expand the definition of what is considered rigorous publishable material.

Submission Deadline is 11:59pm (EST) October 1, 2014
