Theatre in the Digital Age
Aims and Scope of the Publication
When we come together as queer, trans people, as feminist, dalit, adivasi, labour activists, as students collective members, labour union members, climate action group members, or as recluses hiding from the rest, magic happens. Entire worlds of possibilities sit within us, waiting for the thrill of some interaction, a trace of hope to channel them. They materialize in the strategies of our politics, together or alone, in the act that balances what we imagine and what is needed. Too often, it takes a few moments to even allow imagination to run wild – free-range wild, that too, not wild as in wilderness, as in orcas and mushrooms and such.

Nos interesa examinar los personajes teatrales que el poder tilda de “desechables” por su clase económica, discapacidad, raza, sexo, orientación sexual, y/o por su condición de desempleado, encarcelado, inmigrante, exiliado, perdedor de una guerra, entre otros motivos. Estos grupos a menudo son víctimas de la necropolítica que, según Achille Mbembe, instrumentaliza la existencia humana de manera que el poder determina quiénes son valiosos y quiénes resultan prescindibles, provocando así la degradación de la calidad de vida de numerosas personas.

Consider submitting paper extracts for Surplus and the Melodramaric Excess at the upcoming Nemla Conference, March 7-10 2024 in Boston!
This session investigates the surplus of melodrama through an examination of its excess. What can an overabundance of tears, laughter, and music tell us about the cultures they grew out of or ourselves? In what ways can we re-engage with and rethink the legacy and influence of the melodrama during its time and today?
Latin American ARTivism: Promoting Anti-Racism Action Via Art and Activism
Syndemic Motherhood: Exploring American Epidemics through Engaged and Applied Arts, a case study anthology, explores how various artistic practices and processes have been instrumental in processing, sharing, and learning about the intersectional epidemics unique to US-Americans and their experiences in motherhood. Issues related to social inequity such as gun violence, healthcare access, the COVID-19 pandemic, poverty, and childcare converge to create challenging circumstances for women and mothers in the United States. The arts provide a malleable yet rigorous framework to unpack these issues publicly.

“Fashioning the Borderlands” call for chapters
Editors: Marie Bravo-Moix and Yvette Chairez
This special edition of Interdisciplinary Humanities will investigate how performance shapes our experience of the humanities. In the four decades since NYU offered the first degree in “Performance Studies,” the advent of the internet and social media has changed the way we study, create, teach, learn, and identify ourselves. Performance forms and platforms have multiplied and facilitated one of the most contentious political cycles in American history, public upheavals demanding social justice, and new thresholds of mis and disinformation. How are these performance platforms shaping our experience and understanding of the world?
Edited Collection CFP: Shakespeare on Broadway
A new volume edited by Kirstin Pauka, Dennis Gupa, and Catherine Diamond will address the particular contributions made by Southeast Asian live performances of theatre, dance, puppetry, and performance art to further a healthy engagement with nature.

The special issue is open to any study that focusses on the significance, understanding, and reception of this important book in its own time and/or at any time between 1623 and now.
Across the world there are thriving networks of practitioners whose work draws on dramatherapy (or drama therapy) - the intentional use of drama and theatrical practices as a tool for therapeutic change. Conferences, publications, social media campaigns, and more seek to bring together this diverse community, who are united by their belief in the transformational potential of the techniques they use.
