We invite abstracts for a proposed special issue on Barrie Kosky for the Journal of Australian Studies, for likely publication in 2022. Articles for the issue may be on any aspect or period of Kosky’s career – as director, performer, librettist, theorist, adaptor, administrator, manager, etc., in Australia, in Europe and elsewhere – and may focus on any or all of the art forms he has worked in – spoken theatre, opera, operetta, musicals, etc. As Kosky’s career is multifaceted, we hope that the issue will contain articles approaching Kosky from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds.

As an expression of interest, please send an abstract of about 250-300 words for a proposed article and a biographical note of similar length or less to both James Phillips, University of New South Wales ( and John Severn, Macquarie University ( by 15 August. If accepted, articles should be between 6,000-8,000 words including footnotes, etc., and first drafts are likely to be due by mid-2020.
