Platform: Journal of Theatre and Performing Arts

Platform is a refereed journal that has been devoted to publishing the work of postgraduates, postdoctoral researchers, and entry-level academics in the fields of theatre and the performing arts for more than a decade.

Platform, as the name suggests, works to provide a space for postgraduate researchers and entry-level academics to have their work circulated through online publication. Each edition also has a limited print run in full colour.

The journal is run by postgraduate researchers and operates a peer and academic review system, which ensures that contributors not only have the opportunity to publicise their research, but also receive valuable feedback.

Platform is published twice a year, with each edition following a broad theme, making it possible for diverse research interests to be covered in each volume. Platform explicitly welcomes interdisciplinary work and submissions not only from scholars of theatre, performance, and dance, but also from those working in related disciplines whose work speaks to our calls for submissions.
