PSA, the Pirandello Society Annual journal, invites articles from multiple disciplines for volume XXVII (2014) of the publication. We welcome articles that engage Pirandello’s work and influence from perspectives including film, literature, theatre or the visual arts. We are especially interested in papers that examine political themes and motivations throughout his corpus or comparative and interdisciplinary articles that examine the European and/or global resonance of Pirandellian themes, tropes, or images in the visual arts, film, or on stage.
PSA is a leading source of English-language research on Pirandello that regularly features work by both established and emerging scholars. In publication since 1985, it is committed to fostering both specialized research on Pirandello as well as comparative and interdisciplinary approaches; likewise, the Pirandello Society of America strongly supports not only the study but also the production of Pirandello’s theatrical work. All submissions to the journal are read by the issue editor(s), and all published articles go through a process of double-blind peer review.
