Note: Podzimní číslo časopisu Theatralia (ročník 18, 2015, číslo 2) je tematicky věnováno českému loutkovému divadlu ve světovém kontextu (Czech Puppet Theatre in Global Contexts). Autoři se ve svých příspěvcích věnují tradicím loutkového divadla u nás (manželé Jiráskovi o loutkovém divadle přelomu 19. a 20. století a Jaroslav Blecha o loutkách rodiny Flachsů), významným umělcům (Pavel Jirásek o Josefu Skupovi), vztahu loutkového divadla a rané kinematografie (Martin Bernátek o loutkové renesanci a filmu), dramaturgii a podobám současného českého loutkářství (Kateřina Lešková Dolenská, Nina Malíková a Katarzyna Lech) i vlivu loutkového divadla na český animovaný film (Dan North o Jiřím Bártovi, Janu Švankmajerovi a Janu Svěrákovi, a Georgia Chryssouli o Janu Švankmajerovi). Číslo dále obsahuje příspěvky o mezinárodním dosahu českého loutkářství (Joseph Brandesky o výstavě a inscenaci v Ohiu a Agnès Novak a Dušan Petráň o jejich divadelní společnosti Yorickovy marionety, činné v USA a Francii) a soupis významných loutkářských výstav od roku 1989 (Martina Pecková Černá). Součástí časopisu jsou tematické knižní recenze (převážně o loutkách a spřízněných oborech) a také prvně publikovaný překlad studie O. Zicha o českém loutkovém divadle z roku 1923. Editory čísla jsou Christian M. Billing a Pavel Drábek z Univerzity v Hullu (Velká Británie).
Note: The autumn issue of the journal Theatralia (volume 18, 2015, issue 2) is a themed English volume entitled Czech Puppet Theatre in Global Contexts. The individual contributions address traditional Czech theatre (Marie and Pavel Jirásek on late 19th and early 20th century puppet theatre, and Jaroslav Blecha on the marionettes of the Flachs family), leading puppetry artists (Pavel Jirásek on Josef Skupa), the relation between puppetry and early cinema (Martin Bernátek on the Puppetry Renaissance and the film), the dramaturgy and present-day forms of Czech puppet theatre (Kateřina Lešková Dolenská, Nina Malíková, and Katarzyna Lech), as well as the influence of puppet theatre on Czech animated film (Dan North on Jiří Bárta, Jan Švankmajer, and Jan Svěrák, and Georgia Chryssouli on Jan Švankmajer). The volume also contains essays on the international impact of Czech puppetry (Joseph Brandesky on the exhibition and theatre production in Ohio, USA, and Agnès Novak a Dušan Petráň on their theatre company Yorick's Marionettes, active in the USA and France), and a list of significant exhibitions of puppetry since 1989 (Martina Pecková Černá). The volume also contains a section of themed book reviews (predominantly on puppets and related disciplines) and a translation of Otakar Zich's seminal essay on puppet theatre from 1923; this is the first publication in English. The special issue was edited by Christian M. Billing and Pavel Drábek of the University of Hull (UK).
