ROMARD (ISSN 0098-647X, eISSN 2693-8472) is a peer-reviewed journal sponsored by the Medieval and Renaissance Drama Society (MRDS) and published by Medieval Institute Publications on an annual basis. With over three decades of operation, the journal is dedicated to the dissemination and discussion of bold interdisciplinary approaches, methodologies, and conceptualizations regarding the study of drama, performance, theatre, and theatricality from pre-modernity (500–1650). Additionally, ROMARD seeks work that expands the exploration of the dramatic impulses, theatrical phenomena, and performative material of the past, encompassing global cultures and histories. We invite full-length articles that challenge and/or re-examine established narratives, definitions, documentation, and ontologies concerning historical performance(s) and theatricality. Articles submitted may include—but are not limited to—archival research, historiographical analysis, literary criticism, performance theory, performance-as or performance-based research, historical dramaturgy, productions census, or efforts in translation of source materials.
