Journal of Religious and Political Practice Call for Papers

Journal of Religious and Political Practice

The Journal of Religious and Political Practice is a peer reviewed, interdisciplinary journal which offers a global and inclusive perspective on religion and politics. Taking ‘practice’ as its primary focus it promotes the discussion of organizations, parties, traditions, institutions, ideas, physical spaces, and objects that have political and religious significance: exploring religion and politics, not just as ideologies or belief systems, but as rituals, programs, mobilizations, and practices embodied in everyday activities, institutions, and structures.

Incorporating research articles that debate and analyze issues such as secularization, globalization, the post-secular, religious reform, media, intra- and inter-religious dialogues, power and authority, migration, citizenship, national identity, pilgrimages, violence and peace, and ecological movements, the Journal of Religious and Political Practice aims to invigorate debate and offer new themes and directions for future research.
