Implicit Religion

I am happy to announce that I have been appointed co-editor of the Equinox Journal, Implicit Religion, following the death of the founding editor, Edward Bailey, last year. It will nowbe published in collaboration with The Religious Studies Project, taking a new, critical direction. My co-editor is Jack Laughlin of the University of Sudbury, Canada.

This international journal offers a platform for scholarship that challenges the traditional boundary between religion and non-religion and the tacit assumptions underlying this distinction. It invites contributions from a critical perspective on various cultural formations that are usually excluded from religion by the gatekeeping practices of the general public, practitioners, the law, and even some scholars of religion. Taking a broad scope, Implicit Religion showcases analyses of material from the mundane to the extraordinary, but always with critical questions in mind such as: why is this data boundary-challenging? what do such marginal cases tell us about boundary management and category formation with respect to religion? and what interests are being served through acts of inclusion and exclusion?
