Renaissance Drama: A Critical Annual


The journal Renaissance Drama has entered into a partnership with the University of Chicago Press. Please visit our home page on the Press website.

Renaissance Drama invites articles that investigate traditional canons of drama, as well as those that explore the discourses that shaped and were shaped by the varied institutions of theater across early modern Europe and beyond its borders, and those that investigate manifestations of performance and performativity both on and off the theatrical stage. We particularly welcome essays that offer newer forms of interpretation on the study of early modern plays, theater, and performance; and that concern works written in traditions other than the English (although we can only publish essays in English).

Your submissions to the Renaissance Drama Journal will be made by uploading your manuscript to the University of Chicago Press. To begin the process, please click on the link to enter their Editorial Manager system.
