Masks welcomes paper submissions to be published in the inaugural issue.
Masks: the online journal of law and theatre is a new multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed online journal based at the University of British Columbia Faculty of Law. The journal’s focus is on the intersections of law and theatre. Diverse scholarship exists on some of these intersections, including: courtroom as theatre; historical connections between theatre and the Inns of Court; lawyer playwrights; images of lawyers in popular culture; law in literature studies of plays; and legislative theatre. Masks seeks to bring together continuing scholarship in these areas and to provide a forum for discussions of new areas of research. For its first issue, Masks aims to showcase the range of potential scholarship in this field.
Masks will be launched at a Law and Theatre conference in Vancouver, June 17-19, 2008. Authors are encouraged to present papers at the conference and to consider proposing related workshop activities.
Submissions are solicited from all scholars – not only those working in the fields of Law or Theatre. Scholarship from the areas of sociology, psychology, social work, communication studies, literature, business and other fields which focus on the nexus of law and theatre is highly encouraged. As well, Masks encourages the submission of papers by graduate students (including LL.B. students) and plans to include one student paper per issue. Student papers will be included in the peer review process.
