Occasional Essays

The STR website is proud to introduce a new series of occasional essays that will provide an outlet for material that deserves widespread scholarly distribution but is tied to a particular event or date. Essays will be subject to double blind refereeing and will need to conform to the editorial guidelines of Theatre Notebook. If you want to celebrate an anniversary or explore material that is best suited to dissemination on the web, then please contact Trevor Griffiths at theatrenotebook@str.org for further guidance.
