Issue 3: Performance and War
Editors Debra Kelly and Luke Dixon
Deadline for receipt of articles: 7 May 2010
Publication date: October 2010
The concept of the ‘theatre of war’ is both a military and a cultural one. The very essence of the dramatic situation is necessarily predicated on conflict, and war and theatre have been locked in a productive tension since the beginnings of western dramatic production. This issue will focus on how war has been represented in a variety of dramatic forms in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and on the effects of war on dramatic creativity and production. We are keen to receive papers from a drama as well as a conflict perspective.
The Journal of War and Culture Studies is interdisciplinary and international in scope. We welcome the submission of work by both established and younger scholars in the field.
All articles should be 5,000–6,000 words in length, and
