Practitioners’ Voices in Classical Reception Studies (PVCRS) is an Open Access e-journal published by the Department of Classical Studies at The Open University. Its aim is to provide a forum in which creative practitioners (theatre directors, actors, poets, translators, artists, architects, composers, choreographers and others) can discuss the relationship between their work and the classical texts, themes and contexts on which they draw.
The first six issues of the journal have featured practitioners working with literature, drama, visual/material culture and music. Future issues will broaden the journal's scope to other areas, including film, dance and historical reenactment.
More information about the Editors and International Advisory Board can be found on the 'About' page. We hope that the journal will lead to further dialogue between creative practitioners and critics and academics (who are after all also practitioners). Suggestions of features and contributors to Practitioners' Voices are very welcome and should be sent to the Editor - please see the 'Contact' page for more details.
