Parabasis Journal of the Department of Theatre Studies of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

Parabasis is the Journal of the Department of Theatre Studies of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. The journal is issued and edited by the academic staff of the Department, under the Direction of emeritus professor Walter Puchner. Parabasis welcomes original scientific articles and book reviews that explicitly promote specific issues in the field of theatre studies and research, which primarily focus on the history and theory of theatre and drama and, in addition, on the theory and history of various relevant arts and cultural disciplines (i.e. cinema, visual arts, comics, digital arts).

Each Volume consists of two sub-Volumes, one with papers written in a language other than Greek (English, French, German, Italian) and one exclusively with papers written in Greek, Volume 1 and 2, respectively.

Besides the specific topic of each new Volume, contributions on different subjects may also be accepted as well so as to be included in the other sections of the volume, namely, StudiesMiscellaneaTexts —for unpublished theatrical texts and/or dramas— and Book Reviews—for published books and monographs on subjects relevant to theatre studies.
