Special Issue
Religion as Performance
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
