This special issue of the Journal of the Midwest Modern Language Association aims to interrogate how transatlantic encounters, itineraries, and movements have shaped literary and cultural expressions, influencing the formation of both individual and collective knowledge. In particular, it aspires to foster a dialogue to address political, ethical, sexual, and aesthetic questions related to transatlantic interactions among people, practices, and ideas, expanding from traditional Eurocentric perspectives and canonized narratives to encompass a global perspective. This dialogue becomes even more relevant in the present days, considering the political and cultural implications of such motilities. Transatlantic travels have played a

Critical scholarship on the indigenous humans of North America and scholarship in Critical Animal Studies often remain separate and rarely appear in dialogue with one another. And yet, both fields of study can benefit greatly from being placed in conversation. There has not been a volume to date that adequately grapples with the similar exploitation and extinction of these two marginalized “Others.” The crucial intersection of the human indigenous and other non-human species entails both trope and reality, as both a longtime ideological comedy of errors and misprisions—and a longtime material tragedy of genocide and extinction.

Textualities of American Drama: What are the textual forms of American drama? Dramatic works produced during the nineteenth century (an age largely dominated by spectacular melodrama) and the early twentieth century (an era that turned imperfectly to dramatic realism) are often studied according to their production histories rather than their circulation as printed play texts. But the publication of dramatic texts was a significant subplot of the expanding publishing industry throughout the United States. How did the making and consumption of plays in print shape the literary status of American drama?
The editors of the journal Restoration and Eighteenth-Century Theatre Research welcome essays for consideration. Please refer to RECTR’s website for full submission guidelines: rectrjournal.org. General queries and article submissions may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Restoration and Eighteenth-Century Theatre Research is a peer-reviewed, academic journal published under the auspices of the department of English at Valdosta State University. The journal features scholarship on late seventeenth- and eighteenth-century British and European drama and staging. Issues contain articles, theatre reviews, book reviews, and occasional interviews.
From the Nāṭyaśāstra or Aristotle’s Poetics to social media posts or the new online review aggregators, discourses about theater have shaped the course of the art’s evolution, reflecting and influencing aesthetics, modes of production and models of social and political involvement.
The emergence and spread of “practice as”, “practice-led” or “practice-based” research paradigms, the growing interest for the performative function of arts archives, the fluidization and democratization of critical discourses, as well as the ripple effect of the performative turn define, nowadays, a climate in which theory and practice intermingle, seemingly re-bridging the gap between artists and scholars, between creators, historians and critics.
