The Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism (JDTC)

The JDTC was founded in 1986 at the University of Kansas by John Gronbeck-Tedesco and Paul Newell Campbell. The Journal publishes full-length articles that contribute to the varied conversations in dramatic theory and criticism, explore the relationship between theory and theatre practice, and/or examine recent scholarship by a single author.  The Journal is edited by the faculty of the Department of Theatre, with the participation of faculty in affiliate departments.   The JDTC is published twice each year by the Department of Theatre with the support of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
