Call for Papers: Performing Ethos

 Performing Ethos (PEET) aims to identify and explore key ethical issues facing theatre and performance today. Acknowledging that ethical issues are always contextually determined, we wish to explore the range of ethical concerns and responses that arise within different cultural contexts. Global in scope, PEET provides a unique forum for rigorous scholarship and serious reflection on the ethical dimensions of a wide range of performance practices, from the politically and aesthetically radical to the mainstream. Of equal interest are those practices which are ethically motivated, and those in which ethical concerns are less clearly to the fore. 

Submissions might consider, but are not limited to:

Theoretical paradigms appropriate to ethics and theatre, and the relationship between them

Ethics of representation (authenticity, gender, sexuality, class, ethnicity, age, disability, culture, beliefs)

Ethics of witnessing, participation and spectatorship

Ethics in relation to inter- and intra-culturalism

Ethics of applied and interventionist theatre, including community theatre, theatre for development, theatre and education, theatre and health

Critical perspectives on ethically motivated performance

Performance, ethics and the law

Ethical practices in the creative industries (including training, authorship, employment, sustainability)

The journal normally considers articles of 5–7,000 words. Contributions to the ‘Reflections’ section (short meditations, provocations or case studies) of between 500–1000 words are also welcome, as are interviews with practitioners or agents whose work is potentially of interest to the journal’s readership.
