June 26, 2020

Four Theatre Research in Canada covers.

The Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies, University of Toronto is pleased to announce that Theatre Research in Canada/Recherches théâtrales au Canada (TRIC/RTAC) has moved operations to the University of Toronto Press.

Theatre Research in Canada/Recherches théâtrales au Canada is Canada’s only peer-reviewed journal with an explicit focus on Canadian and Québécois theatre in both official languages. As such, it provides a necessary forum for the dissemination of scholarly research that uses the full range of critical approaches applied to the study of theatre as a multidisciplinary art, in the context of the cultures of Canada and Quebec. TRIC/RTAC is dedicated to supporting research that explores First Nations theatre and performance culture, as well as the history of other historically disadvantaged social groups.

With the long-time patronage of the University of Toronto Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies (formerly the Graduate Centre for Study of Drama), TRIC/RTAC established itself as a leader in its field and is the official publication of the Canadian Association for Theatre Research/Association canadienne de la recherche théâtrale (CATR/ACRT).

“We are both thrilled and saddened to be handing the journal over after so many years
of being its home but are doing it with the bright and secure future for the journal at heart.”
— Tamara Trojanowska, Director, Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies

“As General Editor of TRIC/RTAC since 2016, I couldn’t be happier about this move. It will mean much-needed security for the journal in the long term, rich opportunities for the excellent work we publish to reach a much broader audience, and a very welcome shift in labour practices that will allow future editors at the journal to concentrate properly on the development of new discourses and synergies in the field – within Canada, across Turtle Island, and beyond.” — Kim Solga, TRIC/RTAC General Editor

TRIC/RTAC ‘s latest issue focuses on race relations across US-Canada borders and is currently open access at Edited by Colleen Daniher and Katherine Zien, Race and Performance in the US-Canada Borderlands (TRIC/RTAC 41.1, 2020) includes articles from Christine Bold, Philip S. Howard, Matt Jones, Kristin Moriah, Danielle Wong, Colleen Quigley, and Melissa Templeton.

The journal will continue to play an active role in broadening the parameters of theatre scholarship in Canada, through engagement with multi- and interdisciplinary research; studies of specific cultural groups and intercultural exchange; investigations of new and emergent technologies in Canadian design and performance; and explorations of theatricality and performativity beyond the traditional contexts of theatre and drama.

“We are delighted to welcome Theatre Research in Canada/Recherches théâtrales au Canada to the UTP Journals collection,” says Antonia Pop (Vice President, University of Toronto Press Journals). “TRIC/RTAC is a vital resource in the field of theatre and performance studies in Canada and will make a significant contribution to UTP’s long-standing tradition of scholarly publishing excellence. We look forward to working closely with TRIC/RTAC authors and sharing this crucial research with current and future readers.”
