women & performance - a journal of feminist theory
Women & Performance was founded in 1983 by graduate students in the Department of Performance Studies at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. The journal publishes interdisciplinary feminist scholarship on performance, broadly construed.
Since its inception the journal has operated as a feminist collective. Faculty and graduate students from a variety of disciplines volunteer their time and collectively edit each issue of Women & Performance. After self-publishing for 23 years, Women & Performance was acquired by Routledge, Taylor & Francis. With each issue we continue our mission of extending and reformulating notions of gender and performance.
