Call for Articles – PSA XXIX (2016)

PSA, the Pirandello Society Annual journal, invites articles from multiple disciplines for volume XXIX (2016) of the publication. We welcome articles that engage Pirandello’s work and influence from perspectives including film, literature, theatre or the visual arts. We welcome comparative and interdisciplinary work that examines a range of topics including: the historical context of Pirandello’s work, the broader discourses in which his work and ideas can be read, theoretical perspectives that might enrich our understanding of his work and the work of his contemporaries, studies of the sources relevant to Pirandello’s work, studies of the reception of the reception and legacy of Pirandello in Italy and/or globally.

We also seek reviews of recent performances, adaptations, and publications on these and related topics.

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. Volume XXIX (2016) of the journal will be in print in early 2017.
