Frederick C. Corey and Thomas K. Nakayama, guest editors of Text and Performance Quarterly, invite scholarship on the intersections of religion, performance, and power. Of particular interest are manuscripts that explore confounding borders of hegemony, politics, race, ethnicity, (post)colonialism, sexuality, patriotism, theaters of war, and nationalism. Topics may range from the everyday practice of religion to missionaries, religious “stars,” the ideology of “the separation of church and state,” religious conflict, religion and capitalism/imperialism, ubiquitous enactments of fundamentalism or Puritanism, and triptychs of religion/sex/politics. Manuscripts from a wide range of perspectives, including rhetorical, feminist, ethnographic, political, psychoanalytic, and aesthetic are welcome. The possibility of photographs is open, subject to editorial review and budgetary constraints.
All submissions should observe the following guidelines:
Manuscripts submitted for this special issue should not be under consideration elsewhere. Because TPQ follows a policy of blind, peer review, no material identifying the author(s) should appear anywhere other than the title page. Double-space the entire manuscript, including notes and block quotes. Include an abstract of not more than 150 words and a list of 5 suggested keywords. Indicate the history of the manuscript, noting whether it is part of a thesis or dissertation and, if so, the director’s name, and/or whether any portion of the essay has been presented at a colloquy, conference, or convention. Manuscripts must conform to the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, edited by Joseph Gibaldi (6th edition).
Please email manuscripts (no hard copies please) in MS Word or WordPerfect to Fred at the email below by March 8, 2004. We welcome inquiries to either Fred or Tom at the emails below.
Text and Performance Quarterly is a peer-reviewed journal of the National Communication Association published by Routledge Journals, an imprint of Taylor & Francis Ltd.
