Focus & Scope
is an annual, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the dissemination and discussion of bold interdisciplinary approaches, methodologies, and conceptualizations regarding the study of drama, performance, theatre and theatricality from pre-modernity (500-1650). Additionally, ROMARD
seeks work that expands the exploration of the dramatic impulses, theatrical phenomena, and performative material of the past, encompassing global cultures and histories. We invite full-length articles that challenge and/or re-examine established narratives, definitions, documentation, and ontologies concerning historical performance(s) and theatricality. Articles submitted may include—but are not limited to—archival research, historiographical analysis, literary criticism, performance theory, performance-as or performance-based research, historical dramaturgy, productions census, or efforts in translation of source materials.
