CFP: Puppetry International

Call for Papers


#31 Spring/Summer 2012

Puppetry International magazine seeks brief articles (2,000 words max.) for its upcoming “New Directions in Puppetry Research” issue.  For the first time, the entire issue will be peer reviewed. Although there are no restrictions on theme, articles should demonstrate rigorous scholarly research and analysis while also appealing to general readers with a strong interest in theatre and art.

Puppetry International is the bi-annual publication of UNIMA-USA, the United States chapter of the Union Internationale de la Marionette.  Each issue explores a different theme; recent issues have addressed puppetry’s relationship to race, dance, opera, spirituality, sexuality, and propaganda.  We initiated a peer-reviewed section of the magazine in 2007 in order to encourage scholarly writing about puppets and related performance forms.

Deadline for submissions: November 15, 2011
