Open Call for Papers – European Journal of Theatre and Performance (EJTP)


EJTP currently welcomes submissions for the Essays Section for Issue 8. This issue will feature one of EJTP’s “open” Essays Sections (instead of a “themed” one), which means that authors can submit contributions on a topic of their choice. If interested, send your article by 15 July 2024 to

The European Journal of Theatre and Performance (EJTP) is an international peer-reviewed journal published by the European Association for the Study of Theatre and Performance (EASTAP). EJTP aims to stimulate a close dialogue between theory and practice, as well as between theatre and performance scholars and artists across Europe and beyond. Valuing the importance of local practices and scholarly traditions, EJTP wants to question global tendencies and to promote productive crossovers between either geographical or disciplinary boundaries instead. Taking Europe as its starting point, EJTP welcomes a variety of practices, methodologies, and theoretical approaches, from both historical and contemporary perspectives, in order to broaden the purview of the adjacent fields of theatre, performance, and dance studies. 

Articles submitted to EJTP should be between 6.000 and 9.000 words, and follow the Journal Style Guide, which can be downloaded here:
A Word Template for articles is also available at EJTP’s website. 
Authors are kindly requested to familiarize themselves with the profile and aims of the Journal at the EJTP webpage: 

All submitted articles selected by EJTP’s Editorial Board undergo double-blind peer review by anonymous experts. Please note that contributions in the Essays Section must be based on original work not under consideration for publication elsewhere. 

For any queries related to publishing in EJTP, please contact the Editors-in-Chief Luk Van den Dries or Timmy De Laet at
