Ecumenica Journal: Call for Submissions

Scholars and artists are invited to submit essays, artist statements, interviews, book reviews, and performance reviews to Ecumenica, a peer-reviewed journal published by Penn State University Press.

In the vein of performance studies, we welcome scholarship on all sorts of theatrical performance and performance art and also on the activity of religion, including ritual, pilgrimage, festival, and other such devotional and creative practices. We also welcome work on relevant theory and religious concepts.

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 matters of performance and religion.

The journal accepts submissions throughout the year. Submissions that are received by May 1, 2022, can be considered for the Fall 2023 issue.
