About the Journal

The Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism seeks contributions for future issues addressing paradigms used in or potentially useful for dramatic theory and criticism, broadly conceived. Contributions may investigate practices and methods that raise questions about the nature and function of theatre, drama, or performance. Contributions should be 5000 to 8000 words in length.

The journal also invites shorter essays, interviews, or dialogues reflecting on the field or that examine a body of work by an individual author or a recent theoretical or critical trend.

Manuscripts must conform to the most recent edition of the Chicago Manual of Style, using endnotes. Because the JDTC uses a double-blind peer-review process, contributors are asked not to put their names on manuscripts; only the title should appear. All inquiries may be directed to the Managing Editor at jdtc@ku.edu. Manuscripts must be accompanied by an abstract (approx. 100 words in length), 5 keywords, and a brief biography of the author. To submit a manuscript, please send an electronic copy as a Word attachment (including cover page with name, address, e-mail, and phone number) to jdtc@ku.edu.
