Performance, Religion, and Spirituality is an international and interdisciplinary journal that provides a platform for discussion of the performative aspects of religious and spiritual cultural phenomena (which can include atheism and questions of secularism), as well as the religious and/or spiritual dimensions of performance (theatrical, dramatic, and otherwise). We approach the terms theatre, performance, religion, and spirituality broadly, pushing our understanding to encompass historical, local, and especially global contexts. Along with the broad scope of our inquiry, the journal advocates a rigorous theoretical approach, and seeks challenging scholarship that charts new territory in the relationship between performance theory and critical theory, theology and philosophy, anthropology, political science, and theatre studies. PRS especially aims to give visibility to scholars, both new and established, who have struggled to legitimate their work within a modern academy that has consistently relegated the study of spirituality, ritual, and religion to the academic sidelines. PRS is affiliated with the Performance, Religion and Spirituality Working Group of the International Federation of Theatre Researchers (IFTR) and the Religion and Theatre Focus Group with the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE).
