Bibliographic note

Feminist Futures? is a co-edited (50%) anthology that forms an interim outcome of the AHRC funded Women's Writing for Performance Project (2003-6). It brings together a number of internationally acclaimed women practitioners and academics (several of whom took part in the project) to interrogate the future possibilities of feminism as it intersects socially, culturally and politically with theatre, performance and theory. The co-introduction (pp. 1-16 with Elaine Aston) began in embryonic form in a co-presentation made at the annual SCUDD conference at Leeds in 2003 where the idea of the anthology was first aired. A collaborative chapter (pp. 169-189) between Aston, Harris and Simic arose out of an AHRC funded international visit to 'Roots in Transit', 4th International Women's Theatre Festival, Odin Theatret, 2004. An earlier version of this chapter was given (by Aston & Harris) at the international feminist theatre working group, IFTR, St Petersburg, Russia (2004). The final contribution to the anthology 'Angry Again? ' New York Women Artists and Feminist Futures', which brings together four differently situated artists (by genre, feminism and generation), was the result of a second AHRC funded international research trip to New York (2005) by Aston and Harris. Launched at the Women's Writing for Performance Symposium (April 2006, Lancaster University), Feminist Futures? is in a second print run and will be published in paperback in October 2007. It has also been favourably reviewed in the Times Literary Supplement in Theatre Journal, and is cited at length in the editor's introduction to the International Theatre Review (Summer 2007).
