Call for Submissions: Ecumenica Journal

Scholars and artists are invited to submit to Ecumenica: Performance and Religion, a peer-reviewed journal published by Penn State University Press.


Submissions intended for the Fall 2019 issue should be received by May 10, 2019.

In the vein of performance studies, we welcome scholarship on theatre, performance art, and also the activity of religion, including ritual, pilgrimage, festival, devotional practice, etc. We also welcome work on relevant theory and religious concepts. Ecumenica publishes essays, reviews, interviews, artist statements, etc.

Ecumenica attends to the combination of creativity, religion, and spirituality in expressive practice, preferring no particular form of creative expression, and privileging no particular religious tradition. The journal’s very aim is to consider the variety of modes in which creative and religious impulses might be realized. Ecumenica’s interdisciplinary premise welcomes all critical approaches to such topics as performance art, theatre, ritual, contemplative and devotional practices, and expressions of community.

Authors are encouraged to submit work using this link to Editorial Manager:
