Ecumenica, a journal of theatre and performance, seeks book reviews and performance reviews for our next special issue, on the topic of Politics, Performance, and Religion scheduled for publication in Fall 2012.
With the 2012 election just around the corner, and with religion playing such an important role in the public conversation on American politics, now is the ideal moment for a volume on this topic. The reviews in this special issue will complement a collection of articles that explore the intersection of politics, culture, theatre, and performativity.
The following print titles are available for review:
• When Religion Meets New Media by Heidi Campbell.
• Branding Obamamessiah: The Rise of An American Idol by Mark Edward Taylor.
• Reinhold Niebuhr: On Politics, Religion, and Christian Faith by Richard Crouter
• The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream by Barack Obama and No Apology: The Case for American Greatness by Mitt Romney.
Deadline for submission of book reviews is Friday, 6 July 2012. If you are interested in reviewing one of these titles, please contact Book Reviews Editor Barrett Huddleston at firstname.lastname@example.org).
Many professional and regional theatres around the country have already announced summer seasons that include productions directly addressing issues of politics, culture, religion. We invite theatre companies to propose their own productions for review. In addition, anyone else interested in proposing a review of a production that fits within these parameters should contact Performance Reviews Editor Bradley Griffin (email@example.com). Deadline for submission of performance reviews is Friday, 20 July 2012.
Inquiries regarding submission may be directed to the editors, and additional information, including submission guidelines and a style sheet, may be found on the journal’s website (http://www.ecumenicajournal.org).
Ecumenica is peer-reviewed and adheres to an anonymous submissions review policy. It is indexed by the MLA International Bibliography, EBSCO, and ATLA.
