About

The Bulletin of the Comediantes publishes scholarship focused on the theater that thrived in every corner of the early modern world where Spanish was spoken, read, taught, or translated. As a journal published two times per year, we reach forty-three countries across six continents, with articles and book reviews in English and Spanish, distributed both in print and online through Project Muse.

Since our foundation in 1947, the Bulletin of the Comediantes has resided at five different research universities under three editors—Everett Hesse, James Parr, and Edward Friedman. The timely, rigorous, and respectful peer review fomented in collaboration with a famously dedicated Editorial Advisory Board has garnered the Bulletin of the Comediantes a top-flight “A” classification by Spain’s CIRC index, in recognition of our demonstrated rigor and impact.

As we enter our eighth decade, the Bulletin of the Comediantes is drawing new inspiration from the vibrant humanities research and performing arts at the University of Georgia.

Editorial Policy

Submissions are refereed by at least two specialists in the field.

In order to expedite a decision, contributors should send a copy of the essay and an abstract to Elizabeth Wright, editor, by email attachment editor@comediantes.org

Essays should adhere in format to the MLA Handbook, Eighth Edition. See the Bulletin of the Comediantes style sheet in English and Spanish.
