Update: "Between the Sacred and the Profane: Medieval Renaissance and Performance" (Peer-reviewed)

Baylor Journal of Theatre and Performance seeks essays for a special issue, to be guest-edited by Dr. K. Sarah-Jane Murray and Dr. Sinda K. Vanderpool. We welcome essays that explore performance in, and performative aspects of, medieval and Renaissance drama, poetry, and literature. We particularly encourage submissions exploring the relationship 'between the sacred and the profane.' Given that many medieval/Renaissance non-drama works were composed to be performed aloud, the editors will consider submissions focusing on a variety of genres. Popular performances, including non-manuscript based traditions, are also appropriate subjects.
