Call for Papers RCL | nº 50 | Dramaturgies of exile, dramaturgies of resistance

Until October 30, 2018, it is open the Call for Papers for the journal of Language and Communication , n.º 50, on the theme “Dramaturgies of exile, dramaturgies of resistance” edited by Cláudia Madeira (Communication and Society Research Centre, University New of Lisbon, Portugal) andFernando Matos Oliveira (Ceis20, University of Coimbra, Portugal) . 

Artists and researchers from different areas, in step with what has been happening internationally, have been revisiting discourses and practices of theatrical creation taking place at moments of great social and political adversity. This growing interest suggests that the historical correlation between exile, escape, and thought has taken on renewed life, showing us the enormous resilience of the creative act in its capacity to operate and survive oppressive and often violent contexts. This call for papers aims to bring together in a thematic volume collaborations exploring the following topics, among others, that can articulate the duality suggested by dramaturgies of exile, dramaturgies of resistance:

. theatrical creation and censorship in political regimes
. the relation between theatre, displacement and exile
. creations in dialogue with memory and archive
. theatre and its relationship with oppressive political systems and situations
. exile and theatrical practices in relation to documentary theatre
. colonialism and post-colonialism in theatrical creation
. case studies on the dynamics of exile and resistance

This issue of the RCL Nº 50 aims to be a “place of memories” for this broad set of creative processes and contexts, inviting researchers and artists to problematize the course of historical experiences of art, theatre under censorship, contemporary documentary theatre in the transition from the colonial world-system to our globalized world.
