Performing Ethos (PEET) aims to identify and explore key ethical issues facing theatre and performance today. Acknowledging that ethical issues are always contextually determined, PEET intends to examine the range of ethical concerns and responses that arise within different cultural contexts. Global in scope, PEET provides a unique forum for rigorous scholarship and serious reflection on the ethical dimensions of a wide range of performance practices, from the politically and aesthetically radical to the mainstream. Of equal interest are those practices which are ethically motivated, and those in which ethical concerns are less clearly to the fore.

The journal normally considers articles of 5–7,000 words dealing with any aspect of theatre or performance practice, criticism or analysis with a focus on ethical considerations. Longer articles will be considered but no article should exceed 8,000 words. Contributions to the ‘Reflections' section (short meditations, provocations or case studies) of between 500–1000 words are also welcome, as are interviews with practitioners or agents whose work is potentially of interest to the journal's readership.
