Ecumenica: Performance and Religion attends to the combination of creativity, religion, and spirituality in expressive practice. A peer-reviewed journal, Ecumenica regards performance and religion as overlapping and often mutually-constituting categories, 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. The journal expects that performance and religion scholarship can add many more topics to this list.

The journal publishes scholarly essays, book reviews, and performance reviews, as well as interviews, plays, commentaries, and other relevant material. Ecumenica invites submissions from established and emerging scholars.
