CFP: African theatre and Asia, special call for Lusophone African countries

Dear friends and colleagues,

I was asked by James Gibbs to circulate the call for papers for an upcoming special issue of the journal African Theatre, which will be on Asian interactions with African theatre.

Although this is not mentioned specifically in the call, James Gibbs told me they are really looking for at least one entry on a Lusophone African country. If you have any ideas, please reach out to him right away, as the deadline is approaching. I will paste the call below.

All best wishes,
