This new Routledge research series focuses on critical perspectives in festivals and events incorporating current theoretical and methodological developments and exploring under-explored areas in events research which draw from multiple literatures and praxis. International in perspective, it will adopt cross-disciplinary approaches with wide-ranging social, political, cultural, economic, and environmental implications. The festivals and events themselves will not be the sole units of analysis; rather, the broader context within which festivals and events gain significance will be the focal point of books within this series. In adopting a critical stance, we take our starting point the idea that events intervene in social structures and, in so doing, they expose the diverse contested discourses and frames of reference being articulated by the actors and institutions involved.
We invite expressions of interest from established academics as well as early career scholars for monographs and international edited collections. The research series will provide a forum for the publication of the freshest and most compelling critical perspectives on events. The series editors have identified some broad areas of interest based on potential gaps in the literature; however, they are open for discussion on developing ideas.
