Maska: The Performing Arts Journal is Europe's oldest professional journal in its field. For the last two decades Maska has fostered a high-level professional discourse in a range of subjects such as performance studies and theories of contemporary dance in connection with the broader field of contemporary arts, multimedia practices, social theory and philosophy. Since 2001, Maska has been bilingual (contributions are published in Slovenian and English), which has made it accessible to an international audience, where it has acquired relevance. Subscribers to the journal include the libraries of performance studies departments of European and American universities; this has resulted in joint projects, for example a special issue of the magazine published in cooperation with the prominent magazine Performance Research (Routledge). The journal is double-blind peer-reviewed in order to maintain the highest standards of scholastic integrity.


In 2013, Maska acquired an international co-publisher, Intellect. Numerous contributions of domestic and foreign authors first published in Maska have been reprinted in several foreign magazines, conference proceedings and monographs. Maska is annually presented at national and international theatre festivals and in major international centres of contemporary arts: at Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers in Paris, at Tanzquartier in Vienna, at the PSi conferences in Utrecht and Zagreb and at numerous events (co)organised by the Maska Institute in Slovenia and abroad. Maska has hosted a variety of editors, internationally acknowledged and prominent experts (Martina Ruhsam, Beti Zerovc, Bojana Kunst, Eda Cufer, Aldo Milohnic, Ana Vujanovic, Bojana Cvejic, Marina Grzinic Mauhler), and has thus brought to the domestic scene fundamental considerations on topics from the field of reflections on the body, spectatorship and the visual, Brecht's gestus, feminist approaches in performance studies, subversive affirmation, open work and participatory performance formats, new European drama, memory, dance and its histories, domestic theatre production, biotechnology, philosophy and gender.

When needed, use also internationally known ibid., *cf., p., pp.

Use the same format if adding your list of source literature at the end of the article.

Changes in quotations
All your omissions and other interventions into the quoted text should be marked with square brackets [].
Example:…known as “[p]rivileged supplement of our epoch, [that is] interrupting the tracing of the trace to replace it […] with the formation of form”…

Article structure

You may wish to subdivide your text into specific sections using sub-headings. Please use only one level of headings (apart from the main title).

Titles

Always use italics; when the work/contribution is considered more a part of a larger context than an independent event (for instance: a single lecture in the context of a conference), use quotation marks for the piece and italics for the name of the series.

Concepts
When using an expression with a well established, defined meaning in a certain discourse, use italics (for instance: objet petit a); when applying or making up a new expression primarily for illustrating a certain point, use quotation marks (for instance: the body “reterritorialises”).
You can use italics also for emphasizing/stressing something (for example: do we speak even more today about collaboration, cooperation, collectivity, because the more artists kept speaking about them in this last decade [since Imschoot first asked the question] the less they ended up working together?).

Performance and book reviews
The title of the review must be followed by basic information about the reviewed performances and books.
Example:
Mise en scène v iskanju svoje sodobne identitete (title)
Patrice Pavis, Sodobna režija. Ljubljana: Knjižnica Mestnega gledališ?a ljubljanskega, 2012. (subtitle)

All articles must be accompanied by
1. A short biography of the author

2. An abstract totalling up to 700 characters with spaces (120 words) 
3. Six keywords
