Call For Papers

---Call for Papers: the Scottish Journal of Performance, Volume 1 (Issue 2)---

The Scottish Journal of Performance is a peer-reviewed Open Access journal which promotes and stimulates discussion, development and dissemination of original research, focusing both on performance in Scotland (contemporary and historical) and / or wider aspects of performance presented by scholars and reflective practitioners based in Scotland. We invite contributions from a wide and diverse community of researchers, providing opportunities for both established and early career scholars to submit work. We encourage a wide range of research methods and approaches, including practice-led research and practice as research.

Possible submission formats include audio and video recordings with commentary, practitioner reports, reflective journals and scholarly articles.

Performance in this context encompasses a wide range of arts and entertainment and takes as central themes dance, drama, film, music and television. The research field of the Scottish Journal of Performance takes as a key focus the creation and execution of performance in various contexts. Examples include the role and value of performance, performance education, teaching and learning in performance, theory and practice, performance psychology, community performance, performance in society (class, economics, ethnicity, gender, religion), youth performance, performance aesthetics, research methods and methodologies. This list is not intended to be exhaustive.

We also welcome short book reviews of pertinent texts published in the last 12 months. Please contact the Editors for more details.
