    Aims and Scope

    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 appears twice a year: volume one is a special issue based on the annual international conferences held by the German Society for Contemporary Theatre and Drama in English, volume two invites individual essays on contemporary theatre and drama in English. The journal also contains a review section.

    • contemporary Anglophone dramatic literature
    • theatre performance
