Focus and Scope
Performance Philosophy is an emerging interdisciplinary field of thought, creative practice and scholarship, supported by an international network of over 2000 scholars and artists. As an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal, Performance Philosophy publishes articles that interrogate what this field might be, and that test the relationship between performance and philosophy in all its possible configurations, including the philosophy of performance as well as performance-as-philosophy and philosophy-as-performance.
We are interested in scholarship that draws on a broad range of philosophical traditions, concerned with any aspect of philosophy, whether from Continental or Analytic traditions or beyond, and with any discipline or definition of performance, including but not limited to drama, theatre, dance, performance art, live art, and music.
Peer Review Process
Performance Philosophy operates a system of double-blind peer review, except in the case of submissions such as interviews and non-traditional formats where authors cannot be anonymised. In this case, pieces will be reviewed but not blind. To every submission that is accepted for consideration the Editors attach two external reviewers whose areas of expertise align with the subject matter of the proposed article. The Editors will make the final decision about publication or assess the need for further revision. We endeavour to get a decision back to authors within 12 weeks of submission.
Open Access Policy
