The Spring 2018 issue of the Asian Theatre Journal opens with a farewell from editor Kathy Foley. Read an excerpt from her final Editor’s Note here:

To make this journal worth reading is the work of many hands and heads around the globe. It requires all the expertise that we as a community of Asian Theatre practitioners and scholars can muster—the years that you, as readers-doers-authors, have spent studying Asian dance, music, movement, text, puppets, language, costumes, staging—they are here. So is expertise you have developed in understanding a culture (your own or someone else’s), the many months you have spent in the archives, the long hours you have watched performances in halls, houses, fields, and temples. This journal is a living community of scholars and artists responding via reporting on arts practice to a changing world.

Biography: An Interdisciplinary Quarterly volume 41, number 1 (Winter 2018) arrives with a purple cover and includes a special section, On Prince: A Labor of Love, Loss, and Freedom, guest edited by Andreana Clay.

From the abstract:

With the death of Prince Rogers Nelson on April 21, 2016, many people’s lives were changed forever. In efforts both big and small, those of us left have tried to recall, feel deeply, and write down what his life and death meant to us individually and in community. This special feature explores the feelings of four writers—Andreana Clay, Greg Tate, Steven W. Thrasher, and Scott Poulson-Bryant—who have written about music, race, and Blackness and turn that gaze to Prince and his impact. Each paper was part of the American Studies Association special panel on Prince titled “Prince in Revue.” Here, as we did there, we draw upon a personal and political relationship to Prince in an effort to understand his impact on music, identity, and community.
