INVERBIS – Vol. December 2021Call for Papers – Themed Issue of “Inverbis”Title: Recent Trends in Irish TheatreEditor: Chiara SciarrinoThis issue explores recent trends in Irish theatre and theatre culture with a double aim of assessing and disseminating the work of playwrights, directors, companies, in Ireland and among the Irish diaspora. Special attention is given to 21st century Irish theatre and its sense of heritage, its sense of the present, its use of memory, the duty and challenges of recollection and theatre’s capacity for independent action.Among topics we aim to focus on is the theme of “Partition”: on the one hand this entails reflections on the 1921-2021 centenary, and how Irish theatre rethinks and creates narratives of the Partition, how it partakes in the collective memory of that historical moment. Secondly, we will look into the Brexit, the way it impacts on Irish theatre, and how it is recounted through theatre. Thirdly, we welcome general reflections on how Irish theatre survives through these difficult times and how we ourselves read under our current circumstances of lockdowns, widespread mortality, and the resulting social and economic disruptions.Contributions are invited on the following topics:Irish contemporary playwrightsIrish drama and BrexitIrish drama revisiting classicsAgeing in Irish DramaDisability TheatreIrish Drama and Irish Theatre in Pandemic TimesIrish drama and Irish history (papers on the theme of Partition will be appreciated)Submission and deadlinesProposals should be submitted to by 31 March 2021.Full papers should be sent to  by 21 July 2021..[“InVerbis” is an academic journal that publishes works of researchers both national and international, on the subject of historical-literary, philological-linguistic and didactic research.
