This new bi-annual, peer-reviewed journal will focus on contemporary Anglophone dramatic literature and theatre performance. It renegotiates the understanding of contemporary aesthetics of drama and theatre by treating dramatic texts of the last fifty years.

We invite papers engaging in close readings of plays and also touch upon historical, political, formal, theoretical and methodological aspects of contemporary drama, theatre, and performance. The publishing house De Gruyter (Berlin/Boston) stands for world-wide distribution.

JCDE will appear twice a year. VOLUME ONE will be a special issue based on the annual international conferences held by the German Society for Theatre and Drama in English (CDE).

VOLUME TWO invites individual essays on contemporary theatre and drama in English. The journal will also contain a review section.
