The STR New Researchers' Network invites papers for a special edition of Theatre Notebook focused on the theme of "absence." Lockdowns imposed to stop the spread of COVID19 are forcing scholars to engage with absence in all of its various forms. Performances have been cancelled, archives are closed, families are separated and a ‘new normal’ has emerged. In these strange times, as scholars are forced to reconsider both the impact and value of absences as creative stimuli, the NRN seek papers that discuss, evaluate, and engage with absences, or gaps, in Theatre and Performance research. Deadline: 8 March, 2021.
