Emerging from an international network project funded by the British Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Economics and Social Research Council, and research collaboration between academics and practitioners, Performing Islam is the first double-blind peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal about Islam and performance and their related aesthetics. It focuses on socio-cultural as well as the historical and political contexts of artistic practices in the Muslim world. The journal covers dance, ritual, theatre, performing arts, visual arts and cultures, and popular entertainment in Islam-influenced societies and their diasporas. It promotes insightful research of performative expressions of Islam by performers and publics, and encompasses theoretical debates, empirical studies, postgraduate research, interviews with performers, research notes and queries, and reviews of books, conferences, festivals, events and performances.

Notes for Contributors Download


The journal, which is rigorously peer-reviewed, invites submissions that pursue the methods and methodologies by which we attempt to approach original research in Islam in performance studies, and the study of the performativity inherent in the Islam-related cultural production. Contributions which share research interests and experiences in interrelated areas of performative, homeland and diasporic negotiations, and the complexities of contemporary Islam are particularly welcomed.The journal is uniquely positioned to disseminate the groundbreaking work of genuinely international dimensions. Articles that encourage challenging debate on problem areas within this new developing field are also welcomed to the journal's open forum, as are high quality articles usually published as peripheral items in journals from other disciplines. Proposals for special or themed issues will be considered.

All articles submitted should be original work and must not be under consideration by other publications.

Journal contributors will receive a free PDF copy of their final work upon publication. Print copies of the journal may also be purchased by contributors at half price.
