Alternatives Within the Mainstream II: Queer Theatre in Postwar Britain
Critics are invited to write chapters for a critical study of contemporary
British post-war queer theatre. The focus is on bi, trans, gay, lesbian
identities as represented on the British stage. Keeping in mind that queer
identities are fluid and always in a state of flux, defying definitions
and binary oppositions, articles are invited which examine these
identities as represented in British drama since 1950.
A few of the topics we will cover:
Lesbian theatre
Black lesbian theatre [Black in this anthology includes Asian]
Gay theatre
Black gay theatre
Transexuals, transvestites and other identities represented in British
And more=E2=80=A6.
Individual chapters on dramatists, gay and lesbian theatre companies are
planned. A historical trajectory of gay, lesbian and theatres of other
sexualities is invited.
Each chapter will be 6000-8000 words in length. Please send a proposal of
500 words with your biographical details.
