Guest-edited by Lydia Papadimitriou and Jeffrey Ruoff
Oct. 1, 2014 deadline for submission of proposals
(For accepted proposals, the deadline for completed 6,000-9,000 word essays is December 15, 2014.)
This special issue of NRFTS explores the genesis of festivals, in different countries, to trace the distances festivals have travelled from their origins, how changes are sometimes intentional and at other times the results of socio-political and economic transformations. The guest editors are interested in proposals that break new historical, methodological, and theoretical grounds and, with certain regions already represented in the issue, are especially interested in proposals about festivals in Latin America, underrepresented areas of Asia, as well as North Africa and the Middle East.
Email an abstract of 100-200 words and a 50-word bio to L.Papadimitriou-AT-ljmu.ac.uk and Jeffrey.k.ruoff-AT-dartmouth.edu no later than Oct. 1, 2014.
