Heavenly Acts – Aspects of Performance through an interdisciplinary lens:
„The Acquisition of Performance Practices in Faith Settings“

This AHRC-funded Heavenly Acts international interdisciplinary network (comprising sociolinguists, ethnomusicologists, educationists, social psychologists, anthropologists, religious studies, translation studies, and drama/theatre academics) seeks to understand performance and aspects of performance as central or as important to accounts of a wide range of religious devotional practices.
