General Issue 4.2 CFP

PARtake is an e-journal dedicated to exploring the theory and application of performance in practice. Performance-as-Research is, for us, an investigation into the material, epistemological, and ontological fundamentals of all forms of performance, intended or otherwise.


We are currently accepting submissions for our upcoming General Issue.


We welcome new forms of textual analysis and documentation desiring to widen the aperture of performance writing, offering a continually evolving set of requirements and thus are looking for submissions of artistic and academic research presented in all formats, including traditional, creative, innovative, and integrative.


We are currently accepting:

Articles of 4,000-6,000 words

Multimedia/Digital Explorations accompanied by 1,000-2,000 word essays

Performance Reviews of 700-2,000 words

Book Reviews of 400-800 words



If your investigation/project falls outside these categories but you believe it still operates within the spirit of the journal, please feel free to contact us.


Completed submissions for this issue are due by November 1, 2021. All manuscripts should be submitted through our online system.


For questions about the call for submission please contact the managing editors at
