Calls For Papers:

CFP – Miller Conference 2024

The Arthur Miller Society is always looking for anyone who would like to organize Miller panels at conferences, such as ALA, SAMLA, NEMLA, CDC, American Studies, ASTR or ATHE–please contact our current President, David Palmer, with proposals/details.

In an ongoing effort to encourage Miller studies, The Arthur Miller Society voted at its annual meeting in May 2017 to reimburse conference fees for students and independent scholars who deliver papers on Miller at established academic conferences. We encourage people to join The Arthur Miller Society, but you do not need to be a society member to apply for this reimbursement.

To apply for a reimbursement, please email the following items to David Palmer, the current president of the Miller Society:

  1. A copy of the conference program showing the panel in which your paper was presented and your paper’s title.
  2. A brief abstract of your paper.
  3. A copy of your receipt from the conference organizers showing your payment of the registration fee.
  4. If you are a student, documentation of your student status.
  5. If you are an independent scholar, documentation of other work you have done that is related to the study of Arthur Miller.

The first time a student or independent scholar is approved for a reimbursement, the person also will receive a free one-year membership in the Arthur Miller Society, which includes a subscription to the two issues of The Arthur Miller Journal that the society publishes during that year. The journal is peer reviewed and is published by Penn State University Press. Its articles are included in major academic databases.

Theatre and Performance Notes and Counternotes is the first and only journal in the broadly-conceived field of theatre studies to publish short-to-medium length research articles on any subject, as well as publish discussion and response articles. Placing a premium on clarity, readability, and rigor of thought, TPNC seeks articles that despite their brevity are significant and have wide appeal and applicability in the field. TPNC also welcomes interdisciplinary articles that reach across and/or beyond the field(s) of drama, theatre, and performance studies. Submit all manuscripts to Penn State’s Editorial Manager. This online system will guide you through the steps to upload your article to the editorial office. Except in response or discussion articles in which the identity of the author is appropriate and/or required, in order to undergo the journal’s double-blind peer-review process, all articles should (1) be anonymized, (2) be between 1,500-4,000 words, and (3) conform to the latest edition of The Chicago Manual of Style. Original research articles can range from focused notes to medium-length articles. Articles can be on any subject(s) in the broadly-defined field of theatre studies, but the scope, ambition, and thesis should be appropriate to the length of the submitted article. Discussion articles can offer proposed solutions and/or problematize specific ideas related to, or emerging from, conversations or debates within the field. Discussions can also serve as a place to crystalize conversations or debates in the field, or to bring seemingly-disparate ideas into a more coherent conversation. Response articles are, most often, directed at either the theses of a specific scholar(s) and/or a specific conversation or debate within the field. Often, responses engage directly with the strengths and weaknesses of particular theses or broader ideas in the field in order to either strengthen, modify, or challenge these theses/ideas. The aim of these responses is not to create debates or arguments (and, certainly, never arguments or attacks of a personal nature) but to move the field to a clearer and more accurate understanding of the subject at hand. These response articles can also provide a space to revisit and/or modify one’s own previously-published ideas. If you would like to discuss the possibility of proposing and/or curating a “Symposium” consisting of 3-4 related discussion and/or response articles, please send an email to the Editor of Theatre and Performance Notes and Counternotes, Prof. Michael Y. Bennett at

Studies in Theatre History and Culture series at the University of Iowa Press sent out a request for manuscripts. This series publishes scholarship on the historical contexts of theatre and cultural performance, and features a full spectrum of historiographical methods and perspectives. Topics have encompassed a wide range of fields, including Ancient Greek theatre, the American Chautauqua, Southeast Asian performance, Yiddish theatre, representations of race, gender, and ethnicity onstage, Shakespeare in performance, marionettes, ritual theories of performance, theatricality and antitheatricality. They are particularly interested in works that explore histories of race, gender, sexuality, class, and ethnicity in performance, and  encourage submissions that bring a creative approach to these fields. So why not something related to Arthur Miller? Recent/forthcoming publications include: Collusions of Fact and Fiction: Performing Slavery in the Works of Suzan-Lori Parks and Kara Walker; Cracking Up: Black Feminist Comedy in the Twentieth and Twenty-First Century United States; Bloody Tyrants and Little Pickles: Stage Roles of Anglo-American Girls in the Nineteenth Century; The Song Is You: Musical Theatre and the Politics of Bursting into Song and Dance; and Staging Postcommunism: Alternative Theatre in Eastern and Central Europe after 1989. If you would like to discuss a book proposal for the series, please contact and cc. the Associate Editor for the series, Dr. Dan Ciba at  If you are interested in learning more about the Iowa series, please visit their website:
