Submissions for the PTO Journal

The Pedagogy and Theatre of the Oppressed (PTO) International Organization welcomes submissions to its newly launched Pedagogy and Theatre of the Oppressed Journal. As an annual, peer-reviewed, online open access publication, the mission of the PTO Journal is to create a scholarly and community-based space for critical dialogue about oppression and liberation, and to foster collaborative connections that share, develop, promote, and document how transformative theory (including, but not limited to, Pedagogy of the Oppressed and Theatre of the Oppressed) can affect social change locally and globally. The journal is dedicated to unveiling the lived experiences of communities we belong to and interact with, and struggling against systemic oppression in the pursuit of freedom.

Submissions should that address popular education, liberatory theatre, and related areas, and may take any of the following forms:

  • Research papers
  • Literary essays
  • Manifestos
  • Production and book reviews
  • Photo essays and videos
  • Community-based voices and actions
  • And hybrid projects.

Deadline for Spring 2016 issue:
September 1, 2015
