Information For Readers

The Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism (JDTC) was founded in 1986 at the University of Kansas by John Gronbeck-Tedesco and Paul Newell Campbell. The Journal publishes full-length articles that contribute to the varied conversations in dramatic theory and criticism, explore the relationship between theory and theatre practice, and/or examine recent scholarship by a single author.

JDTC is published twice each year by the Department of Theatre with support from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
