Announcing JCDE: Journal for Contemporary Drama in English, an international journal published by De Gruyter with CDE from 2013!
The Journal of Contemporary Drama in English focuses on issues in 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. The peer-reviewed journal publishes essays that engage in close readings of plays and also touch upon historical, political, formal, theoretical and methodological aspects of contemporary drama, theatre, and performance. JCDE will appear twice a year: Volume one will be a special issue based on the annual international conferences held by CDE Society, volume two invites individual essays on contemporary theatre and drama in English. The journal will also contain a review section.|
Editors: Martin Middeke (Managing Editor), Christina Wald (Reviews), Eckart Voigts, Clare Wallace.
