Special Issue


Call for Papers

For Bertolt Brecht, to treat something as if in quotation marks is to 
submit it to a process of alienation or making strange, whereby that 
which has seemed "the most obvious thing in the world" is rendered at 
once familiar and unfamiliar. "Modernism" itself might be said to have 
been subjected to a process of alienation in recent years, as the 
so-called "new modernist studies" (Mao and Walkowitz) has problematized 
and expanded the traditional periodization, geography, style, and 
address of modernism. This rethinking of "modernism" has been integrally 
linked with the challenges to canonical Western modernism that have been 
posed from the critical and theoretical perspectives of feminist, 
gender, and queer studies, cultural studies, transnational, global, and 
intercultural studies, postcolonial studies, and critical race studies, 
among others. This special issue seeks to interrogate "modernism" as it 
is currently understood within the fields of theatre and performance 
studies. Submissions on all aspects of modernist theatre and performance 
are welcome, and particularly those that engage with recent 
reconceptualizations of the field of modernist studies.

This special issue will be edited by Penny Farfan, Editor, /Theatre 
Journal/. Submissions (6000-9000 words) should be e-mailed to Bob 
Kowkabany, Managing Editor, at doriclay at aol.com 
<mailto:doriclay at aol.com> by April 15, 2013.
