Open Call // Theatre and Ethics 2021

The Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (DAMU) announces an open call for proposals for a forthcoming collective monograph on theatre and ethics. The open call is primarily intended for, but not limited to, teachers, PhD students, and students of all DAMU departments.

Both individuals and collectives of authors can submit their contributions.
The length of contributions is set at 7–18 standard pages.
The format of the contributions is not restricted (e.g., academic essay, case study, professional interview, fictional dialogue, etc.). In addition to the peer-reviewed contributions, we are happy to publish a limited number of non-peer-reviewed contributions such as diagrams, poems, drafts, maps, etc.

The collective monograph is taking shape thanks to the initiative and support of DAMU’s Vice-Dean for Science and Research, doc. Alice Koubová, Ph.D. It will be edited by theatre scholar and DAMU pedagogue Mgr. Karolina Plicková, Ph.D. It will be offered for publication at NAMU Press.

Please send abstracts of 1–2 standard pages (1800–3600 characters) by
10 December 2021
Please direct any questions to the same address.

The basic schedule for the preparation of the publication is as follows:

Theatre and Ethics is the title of a peer-reviewed collective monograph aimed at presenting original contributions by teachers, PhD students, and students from all departments of the Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (DAMU). Its objective is to connect authors from different faculty departments and to offer the opportunity to think about current topics together, in contemporary contexts, and from many different perspectives.
In order to foster this dimension of joint discussion, the book’s editor will organize an informal working table in January/February 2022, during which authors can discuss their chapters if interested.
As part of the concern for work ethics and attention to the workload of DAMU staff, contributions that do not arise from existing grant support will be given a research award from the financial support of DAMU’s Vice-Dean for Science and Research.

The collective monograph will focus on the following research topics:
