Call for Co-Editor
Culture and Religion
About the Journal
Culture and Religion is an interdisciplinary journal that lies at the interface between the study of religion and other academic studies of culture. The journal spans across a range of disciplinary fields, including anthropology, cultural studies, critical theory and gender studies, and postcolonial studies. In particular, the journal considers why cultural studies have hitherto neglected the significance of religious manifestations in cross-cultural perspectives, and defines ways in which the discipline of religious studies needs to engage with other areas of contemporary critical, cultural, and anthropological theory.
