I am currently working on an edited volume of papers provisionally
titled 'Shopping for Jesus!: Religion as Commodity'. The aim of this is

some of the techniques of private enterprise. I am interested in papers
that explore such themes from a range of locations in time, space and

panel welcomes submissions which critically address the stakes of
dismemberment in drama. This might take the form of an analysis of a
particular play or a contemporary look at dramatic theories of dismemberment
from Nietzsche’s conception of Dionysian drama to Artaud’s Theatre of
Cruelty. Broader approaches from theories of mimesis to performance studies
which work toward the dismemberment of drama as a genre will also be
