Founder and Editor

Kamal Salhi University of Leeds



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 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.
