We are calling for expressions of interest from members of our drama education researchers who have an area of research and relevance to our drama education community to prepare a monograph in 2021. Monographs are usually single authored, based in research, and approximately 10-12,000 words in length.

The intention of the Drama Australia Research Monograph series is to describe and critique different approaches to educational practice, consider future directions in scholarship and research, and present a variety of curricular models that teachers and students have found successful in drama education. The first Research Monograph was ‘Pre-text and Story Drama: The Artistry of Cecily O’Neill and David Booth’ edited by Philip Taylor and published in 1995. Since then, Drama Australia has published 12 more monographs, many can be seen here:  https://dramaaustralia.org.au/monograph-series/

The most recent Drama Australia Monograph No. 13 published in 2020, is Alice Hoy is not a building: An ethnographic performance about women in academia, by Jane Bird, Kate Donelan, Chris Sinclair and Prue Wales.


We are now calling for abstracts for consideration by the Drama Australia Board for Monograph No. 14 to be published in 2021.

Please provide a title and 300 word abstract of your proposed monograph together with a 150 word biographical statement to:
