[UPDATE] UPSTAGE: A New Journal of Fin-de-Siecle Dramatic Literature, Theatre, and Theatrical Culture (February 15, 2010)
UPSTAGE, a new peer-reviewed online publication dedicated to research in turn-of-the-century dramatic literature, theatre, and theatrical culture, seeks submissions for its inaugural issue scheduled for the spring or summer of 2010. This is a development of the pages published under this name as part of THE OSCHOLARS, and will henceforth be an independently edited journal in the oscholars group published at www.oscholars.com, as part of our expanding coverage of the different cultural manifestations of the fin de siècle.
Topics may include, but are not limited to, the work of Shaw, Schnitzler, Ibsen, Checkov, Strindberg, von Hofmannsthal, and their contemporaries in Western and Eastern Europe and beyond.
UPSTAGE welcomes a variety of theoretical and critical methodologies.
We are interested in receiving:
Scholarly articles of approximately 3000 words
Book-reviews of approximately 500 words
Reports on work in progress (book manuscripts and doctoral dissertations) (approximately 500-1000 words)
Reviews of contemporary productions of turn-of-the-century plays (or plays about the turn of the nineteenth century) and announcements of future productions (approximately 500 words)
Details of forthcoming conferences on turn-of-the-century theatre and related topics
The publication is international in scope. Although we will publish in English initially, we hope to include publications in other languages in the future.
By February 15, 2010, please e-mail your submissions, as MS Word attachments only, to both
Dr. Helena Gurfinkel, Department of English Language and Literature, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, Edwardsville, IL, USA at firstname.lastname@example.org
