Special Issue "The Complexity of Religious Inequality"
A special issue of Religions (ISSN 2077-1444).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 August 2020).
Interests: Religion; intersectionality; race; class; gender; politics
Although scholars of religion acknowledge religion’s deep interconnectedness with race and ethnicity in (and occassionally class), we nonetheless typically study religion as a factor that is independent from other social structures. Likewise, we rarely systematically examine class, race or gender differences between or within religious groups. This journal issue will highlight research that moves beyond these weaknesses by publishing papers that intentionally examine aspects of inequality as they relate to religion. Papers that explore these connections historically or in contemporary times and internationally or locally are all encouraged.
For more information, or to submit an abstract, please email [email protected]. Abstracts are due by January 1, 2020 and will be accepted on a rolling basis. Papers are to be submitted for peer review by June 1, 2020.
