Renaissance Drama, an annual and interdisciplinary publication, is devoted to drama and performance as a central feature of Renaissance culture. The essays in each volume explore traditional canons of drama, the significance of performance (broadly construed) to early modern culture, and the impact of new forms of interpretation on the study of Renaissance plays, theater, and performance.

Volume 29, Dramas of Hybridity: Performance and the Body, includes essays that focus on historically specific early modern bodies, analyzing staged representations of bodies as they spectacularly unfold, determine, negotiate, and erode various social categories. Topics include pathologies of value and transnationality in Troilus and Cressida, masculinity on the early modern stage, citizen comedy, Italian actresses and female performance, and race and romance in The Merchant of Venice.
