Triangulations focuses on theater, drama, and performance in all its interdisciplinary and historical variety, and in all its professional and community manifestations. We define the term "performance" generously, ranging from dramatic literature staged in theater buildings to everyday rituals that constitute performance (such as commitment ceremonies or memorial services) to the performative dimensions of sex, sexuality, gender, race, and other identity categories. At the same time, we remain committed to scholarship about work that is specifically theatrical in reception and intent, from work at various lesbian and gay theaters and performance spaces, to activist groups around the country who use theatrical spectacle to political effect.
We seek book projects that will address both critics and practitioners, and help to create important conversations around the performance work and critical ideas that they produce. Triangulations encourages manuscripts that demonstrate the creative and intellectual collaborations possible among gay/lesbian/queer critics, activists, playwrights, performers, and theorists. The series also encourages cross-gender, cross-race, cross-ethnicity, inter-identity conversations. Our intent is to be inclusive across disciplines, across practices, and across communities, as well as reaching out within other aspects of the theater studies discipline.
