STAM is Social!

Journal of the Speech and Theatre Association of Missouri

One of the cornerstones of STAM is the annual Journal.  This award-winning publication serves the STAM community and beyond with scholarly resources, original research, and proven teaching resources.  Published once a year, each STAM member that attends the fall conference receives a print copy free of charge.  Current STAM members will also be able to access the current issue online in searchable PDF format.  Past issues of the Journal are being digitized currently and will be made available to the general public once that process is complete.
