6.1 Departures



Issue editors: Claire MacDonald

SKU: 978-0-415-26311 Category:


‘Departures’ will open our sixth year of publication and begins a critical and creative enquiry into travel. This will be the first of three related issues which engage with the migrations of people, performance and performance cultures, generating writing around differing geographies and histories of travel and travelling performance in a diversity of written and visual forms. This issue will include contributions which engage with a variety of critical and artistic points of departure, and ways of thinking about the idea of ‘departures’ in the widest sense of the term, both actual and metaphorical, and about possible ‘departures’ within a variety of sites and contexts – geographical, political, theoretical and artistic.
