CALL FOR CONTRIBUTORS: Women’s Innovations in Theatre, Dance, and Performance 

We are writing about a call for contributors to an exciting new series at Bloomsbury. Women’s Innovations in Theatre, Dance, and Performance aims to capture the innovations women have made to the performing arts in their historical, geographical, and disciplinary diversity. This series seeks to broaden, celebrate, and recover historical awareness of these performance-based artmakers and their contributions; as such, it will showcase innovative, intersectional feminist historiographical approaches along with a history of women’s innovation in the field. 

The series will consist of four volumes; each volume will focus on processes and practices surrounding roles, broadly conceived. The set will be organized as such: Vol. 1: Performers; Vol. 2: Creators; Vol. 3: Designers & Crafters; and Vol. 4: Leaders. 

Here is the CFP for contributions to the series; please consider joining us in this endeavor, or share with colleagues you think may have interest.

Learn more about the series and submit the abstract of your proposed contribution on the series’ website:
