View the contents of this issue

Ecumenica provides a venue for scholarship concerning the performing arts and the relationship between performance and society.

Published biannually, the journal welcomes submissions on a variety of topics and using a variety of critical approaches, including performance and theatre history, 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, religion, and the arts, and which promotes positive dialogue about different faith traditions. We publish articles by both established and emerging scholars.

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