Theater in the Americas

In publishing a wide range of scholarship on theater and performance, this series defines theater in its broadest terms and includes subjects that encompass all of the Americas.

Focusing on not only the performance and production of theater but also theater artists and practitioners, Theater in the Americas welcomes studies of dramatic literature as well. Meant to be inclusive, the series invites studies of traditional, experimental, and ethnic forms of theater; celebrations, festivals, and rituals that perform culture; and acts of civil disobedience that are performative in nature. The series includes studies of theater and performance activities of all cultural groups within the Americas, including biographies of individuals, histories of theater companies, studies of cultural traditions, and collections of plays.
