Publications

The International Federation for Theatre Research (IFTR) exists to promote collaboration and the exchange of information between individuals and organisations concerned with theatre research. To this end the Federation supports publications and assists its members in all such activities and projects.

Publications

The main research output of the IFTR is Theatre Research International.

IFTR works actively to create opportunities for the publication of pioneering research and has negotiated two book series with leading publishers, focusing broadly on international dimensions of theatre and performance across a range of historical periods and geographical scales. These two book series are Themes in Theatre and Studies in International Performance.

 

 

Theatre Research International

Theatre Research International

Theatre Research International  is the official journal of the IFTR which publishes articles on theatre practices in their social, cultural, and historical contexts, their relationship to other media of representation, and to other fields of inquiry. The journal is published by Cambridge University Press and seeks to reflect the evolving diversity of critical idioms prevalent in the scholarship of differing world contexts.

Theatre Research International also publishes translations of recent significant and influential articles that originally appeared in languages other than English. Proposed translations go through a vetting process and, if accepted, may be eligible for IFTR funding of €750 to underwrite translation costs.

Themes in Theatre

The series Themes in Theatre is published by Rodopi in association with the IFTR and provides a publishing environment for collective work by its members. 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. The fact that the multiple authors will have discussed the subject and their contributions among each other not only ensures a high level of consistency within each volume but also results in a gamut of approaches and perspectives that nevertheless are centrally focused.

Studies in International Performance

Studies in International Performance was a joint initiative of IFTR and Palgrave Macmillan. The Series published 40 monographs and edited collections of essays between 2005 and 2015. Many of the books were reprinted in paperback, reflecting high sales. Books in the series garnered six awards in Australia and the USA, with the final two books in the series jointly winning the Joe A Calloway Prize from New York University. The Series Editors, Janelle Reinelt and Brian Singleton received the Excellence in Editing Award for Sustained Achievement in 2012, from the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE).
