Early Theatre welcomes research in medieval or early modern drama and theatre history, rooted in the records and documents of England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. We likewise encourage articles or notes on related materials either in Europe, or in parts of the world where English or European travellers, traders, and colonizers observed performances by other peoples. Although we are primarily interested in the performance history of any art, entertainment, or festive occasion of the period, we also invite submissions of interpretive or literary discussions relating to the performances themselves.
Contributions should be sent to our website http://digitalcommons.mcmaster.ca/earlytheatre/. Manuscripts of articles (preferably 6,000-8,000 words, although longer articles will be considered) and notes (300-5,000 words) should be double-spaced throughout and conform to ET/REED house style (see the Style Sheet on the Early Theatre website). Style guides for manuscript documents in early modern English or Latin are also available online.
If you quote from unpublished letters or documents, you must supply photocopies for checking at the REED office. You must obtain permissions to publish any illustrations, whether digital or photographic, that may be printed with an accepted article.
All articles must be submitted electronically to the website either as Word for Windows (.doc or .docx) or rich text format (.rtf) files.
We will not consider articles being simultaneously submitted elsewhere, nor will we print essays which are to appear in a book published within a year of scheduled publication by ET/REED.
Early Theatre uses double-blind peer review. We request that all authors
remove identifying information from their manuscripts prior to submission. The website requires your email and postal addresses, abstract (150 words maximum), and short biographical statement. All editorial correspondence should be addressed to the editor at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
