Call for Book Chapters: Reconstructing & Adapting Fragmentary Greek Tragedy

This call is to solicit chapter proposals for a new edited volume called Reconstructing & Adapting Fragmentary Greek Tragedy which builds on the academic workshop of the same name, organised by myself in summer 2018 at Royal Holloway, University of London. I would like to invite classicists, theatre studies scholars and theatre practitioners to submit abstracts for essays of 4.000-7000 words.

   Speakers from the aforementioned event, including Timberlake Wertenbaker, David Stuttard, Martin Wylde and Adam Roberts, have confirmed their participation in the volume. Feel free to share this call with potentially interested researchers and practitioners in your network.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

·Scholarly reconstructions of fragmentary tragedies

·Recent (papyri) findings and new research on lost tragedies

·New writing based on/inspired by fragmentary tragedies (methodologies and challenges)

·Postdramatic performances

·Analysis/evaluation of productions based on fragmentary tragedies

·Reception of fragmentary tragedies

·Collaborations between classicists and theatre practitioners

·Fragmentation theory - aesthetics



·Title, abstract (250-300 words), contact information (name, email address and institutional affiliation) and short bio submitted to by 30 April 2019


i. submissions must represent previously unpublished work and must not be under simultaneous consideration elsewhere

ii. acceptance of a proposed abstract does not guarantee the acceptance of the full chapter into the completed volume

·Response from editor and, if successful, invitation to submit contribution: by 20 May 2019

·If contracted, 1st Draft due: by 15 October 2019

·Feedback: by 15 November 2019

·2nd Draft: by 16 February 2020
