Our Mission

The primary aim of Ecumenica is to provide a venue for scholarship and discussion related to the performing arts and to the relationship between performance and society. Published biannually, the journal welcomes submissions on a variety of topics and approaches to criticism, including theatrical performance and theatre history, dramatic literary criticism, social, political and cultural studies of theatre and performance, ethnographic explorations of performance traditions, and editorial commentaries on topics related to the performing arts. We are particularly interested in scholarship that explores the relationship between spiritual faith and the arts, and which promotes positive dialogue about different faith traditions. We publish articles by both established and emerging scholars of theatre.

Ecumenica is indexed by the EBSCO, MLA, and ATLA databases.
