Vol. 63 No. 1 (2018): Romanian Theatre – New Perspectives Celebrating the Centenary of Modern Romania (1918-2018)
2018 is a special year that marks the centenary of the Union of the three Romanian historical provinces (Muntenia, Moldavia and Transylvania) giving shape, after the First World War, to the modern Romania of today. On this occasion we invite our fellow researchers, theater historians, critics, theater people, to revisit the history of Romanian theater and its present, collaborating in the two issues of the journal of Theater Studies Studia UBB Dramatica that will be dedicated to this festive year:
This first issue aims to revisit the history of Romanian theater in all its forms: ancient (archaic), popular, cult, modern and contemporary. It focuses on Romanian theatrical phenomena, fashions, different dramatic genres, stage innovations, foreign and national models, representative authors for certain dramaturgical directions in the national and European cultural context, directors, theater thinkers and actors who renewed the Romanian scene, theater magazines and also the theatrical events and changes that occurred at the time of the Great Union of 1918. Some themes of interest would be: the image of Romania in Romanian dramaturgy; Romanian theatrical historiography; the Romanian language theater of Transylvania before the Great Union; the theater of minorities (Hungarian, German, Jewish, etc.) before, during and after the Great Union; Romanian folklore and popular theater; Romanian theater and film; Romanian theater one hundred years later...
