Call for Papers
Research in the Social Scientific Study of Religion, Vol 32
Abstract Submission Deadline: October 30, 2020
Research in the Social Scientific Study of Religion, volume 32, (https://brill.com/view/serial/RSSR) will have special sections on Cultural Blindness in Psychology and Religion or Belief in HE. It will also have its regular open section for papers on any subject within the socio-scientific study of religion. We welcome your proposals.
Research in the Social Scientific Study of Religion (RSSSR) is an interdisciplinary, international peer-viewed annual series, which publishes new and innovative research within the social scientific study of religion or belief. Contributions span a range of theoretical orientations, geographic contexts and research methods, though most articles are reports of original quantitative or qualitative research related mainly to the sociology and/or psychology of religion.
For 2021, RSSR will include the following special sections
Special section 1: Cultural Blindness in Psychology. Guest Editor Dr. Louise Sundararajan, has collected several papers documenting cultural blindness in psychology beginning with her own paper, “Cultural blindness in psychology: Implications for studies of religion.”
Special section 2: Religion or Belief in Higher Education. In this section, we will explore religious and non-religious identities on university campuses anywhere in the world. Chapter may interrogate how these identities are ‘lived’ on campus and how these are dealt with in university policy, practice, management and curricula.
We invite proposals for papers that explore any dimension of religion or non-religion on campuses in any geographical context, focusing on a particular tradition, group or movement or on the interactions between different parties, or on broader cultural or political changes impacting upon how religion is expressed within campus contexts. We hope that the special section will attract a range of epistemological positions and disciplinary standpoints.
