This series seeks to develop understanding of dramaturgy as a contemporary field, in dialogue with its rich and varied past. The prefix 'new' invites authors to pay attention to the expansion or re-framing of dramaturgy in relation to contemporary contexts, rather than implying a requirement to replace 'old' with 'new', or to offer a programmatic approach to the definition and practice of dramaturgy.

The series will comprise two strands:
* Course texts which encompass fresh and original research insights on key themes related to dramaturgy, at an accessible level for students and non-experts;
* More specialized work which includes a higher level of theorisation.
The books in this series will, for example: look at the dramaturgical implications of new media, globalisation and forms of spectatorship; draw on an 'expanded' use of dramaturgical analysis to examine the relationship between theatrical performance and other disciplines; discuss dramaturgical practice and theory, across a range of perspectives and geographies.

Aims of the series:
*To foster international dialogue and exchange, extending understanding of the complex contexts of dramaturgy and embracing its diversity and scope
*To examine and deploy dramaturgical thinking as a productive analytical and practical approach to performance criticism as well as performance-making
*To offer theoretical discussion of dramaturgy as a field
*To investigate the relationship between idea and form in contemporary practice, including practice-as-research
*To discuss emerging areas of contemporary performance practice that produce new dramaturgies or re-contextualise existing approaches
*To provide English-language texts for teaching dramaturgy in Higher Education
*To build on existing overviews of dramaturgy and of contemporary performance practice to discuss specific aspects of dramaturgy in detail, applying historical and theoretical rigour
