This collection of essays on the subject of theatre and various forms of censorship gathers in an original and stimulating manner the voices of academics, practitioners and artist-scholars, among them Chantal Bilodeau, Stephen Bottoms, Marvin Carlson, Tim Crouch, Stephen J. Duncombe, Rinde Eckert, Randy Gener, Matthew Goulish, Baz Kershaw, Joanna Laurens, Carl Lavery, Christopher Shinn, and Aleks Sierz.

EYECORNER PRESS is an independent academic publishing house started as a collaboration between the universities of Roskilde and Aalborg in Denmark, Oulu in Finland, and Gainesville, Georgia, USA.

THE PRESS focuses on promoting academic writing with an edge.

THE PRESS gives priority to works that engage with rigorous thinking, but which are yet informed by a creative style, and irreverent approaches to literature, culture, philosophy, and visual art.

THE GENRES represented are academic interdisciplinary writing, poetry, aphorisms, fragments, and other borderline manifestations. The fiction manuscripts honor Raymond Federman’s precepts for the writing of critifiction, the conflation of criticism with fiction.

ALL MANUSCRIPTS undergo peer review. Readers include academics from both sides of the Atlantic.

THE PRESS publishes works in English, Danish, French, Romanian, and bilingual editions.
