From the Editor We mourn the loss in 2015 of James R. Brandon, who was a professor at the University of Hawai`i and the founder of this journal, which first appeared in 1984 and that he co-edited with Elizabeth WichmannWalczak until 1992. The contents of this issue of Asian Theatre Journal include translations; articles on traditional, modern, and intercultural theatre; examinations of key contributors to Asian theatre studies; as well as performance and book reviews. The range shows the breadth of Jim Brandon's founding vision. The authors in this issue are of diverse nationalities--Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Bangladeshi, Indonesian, Indian, American, and English. They are part of the transnational dialogue that Jim jump-started. I hope that readers will visit the website that Elizabeth Wichmann-Walczak discusses in her report on the celebration of Jim Brandon's life. But I also invite readers to look at this issue itself, noting the many minds and hands that meet to create it: authors, editors, and staff at the University of Hawai`i Press. All who write, review, edit, correct, read, or create new work out of ideas gleaned from Asian Theatre Journal engage in the living legacy of James R. Brandon, a true "founder of our field."

Abstract

We mourn the loss in 2015 of James R. Brandon, who was a professor at the University of Hawai`i and the founder of this journal, which first appeared in 1984 and that he co-edited with Elizabeth WichmannWalczak until 1992. The contents of this issue of Asian Theatre Journal include translations; articles on traditional, modern, and intercultural theatre; examinations of key contributors to Asian theatre studies; as well as performance and book reviews. The range shows the breadth of Jim Brandon's founding vision. The authors in this issue are of diverse nationalities--Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Bangladeshi, Indonesian, Indian, American, and English. They are part of the transnational dialogue that Jim jump-started. I hope that readers will visit the website that Elizabeth Wichmann-Walczak discusses in her report on the celebration of Jim Brandon's life. But I also invite readers to look at this issue itself, noting the many minds and hands that meet to create it: authors, editors, and staff at the University of Hawai`i Press. All who write, review, edit, correct, read, or create new work out of ideas gleaned from Asian Theatre Journal engage in the living legacy of James R. Brandon, a true "founder of our field."
