The Cambria Studies in Contemporary Theatre and Drama Series calls for monographs on any aspect of contemporary theatre:
- Edited anthologies of plays by a particular author, from a particular country, or focusing on a particular subject. These collections should begin with a critical introduction to the works selected and include biographical material on each playwright and a bibliography.
- The economics of theatre in a particular culture.
- The relationship of theatre to society in a particular culture. We are particularly interested in books that address the central question of what the function of theatre is for a particular culture. Who goes to the theatre? Is theatre being used to effect political or social change in any culture? Is there any viable countercultural theatre?
- Theatre and current social and political issues.
- Drama and other media. We are interested in studies of television drama as well as staged drama. Is the internet a viable medium for drama?
