ROMARD, and many other journals like it, realizes just how much we have contributed to structures and practices that marginalize and neglect BIPOC scholars and scholarships. It is imperative that ROMARD broaden its scholarly perspectives in order to bring the journal into the current moment and ensure that it acts as a supportive space for BIPOC scholars and their work.
Therefore, ROMARD invites BIPOC scholars with interests in premodern drama — particularly those in early career positions — to join our new editorial board. This invitation represents an earnest effort to create an editorial team that emphasizes a diversity of perspectives and scholarship needed within the field of premodern drama studies. See also the MRDS "Statement on the Study of Race and Medieval Drama" ratified in 2017.
Please address your interest in joining the board, or any questions or concerns you may have, to our editor-in-chief, Kyle A. Thomas (KAThomas@missouristate.edu). We look forward to hearing from you!
