UpStage, a peer-reviewed online publication dedicated to research in turn-of-the-century dramatic literature, theatre, and theatrical culture, seeks submissions year-round. This is a development of the pages published under this name as part of The OScholars, and is now an independently edited journal in the Oscholars group published at www.oscholars.com, as part of our expanding coverage of the different cultural manifestations of the fin de siècle. UpStage has recently combined with Shavings, a journal of Shaw studies, and is planning to publish an issue dedicated exclusively to Shaw during the summer of 2012.
Topics may include, but are not limited to, the work of Shaw, Schnitzler, Ibsen, Chekhov, Strindberg, von Hofmannsthal, and their contemporaries in Western and Eastern Europe and beyond.
UpStage welcomes a variety of theoretical and critical methodologies. We are interested in receiving:
- Scholarly articles of approximately 3000 words
- Book reviews of approximately 500 words
- Reports on work in progress (book manuscripts, Master’s theses, and doctoral dissertations) (approximately 500-1000 words)
- Reviews of contemporary productions of turn-of-the-century plays (or plays about the turn of the nineteenth century) and announcements of future productions (approximately 500 words)
