Special Issue:  Worldviews in creating meaning and purpose for learning

We are happy to invite scholars to contribute in our special issue in the Journal of Beliefs & Values. JBV has been among the most respected journals in our field for a long time.

For conference information please click here

The Special Issue will be based on both the best papers of the EARLI SIG 19 conference 2018 and possible supplementing papers derived from this open call. We particularly welcome submissions that recognize the conference theme “Worldviews in creating meaning and purpose for learning”, and that address, for example, the following questions: How worldviews impact people’s motivation to learn, how worldviews guide people's life choices and future orientation, and how worldviews and religions help people to find meaning and purpose in life. The articles can be empirical or philosophical. We anticipate not only methodological diversity but also wish the articles to reflect diverse interpretations and representations of worldviews, values and beliefs in education, cultural and national contexts.

Annual Review of the Sociology of Relgion

Volume 10: Interreligious Dialogue:
From Religion to Geopolitics
Forthcoming 2019
Edited by:
Giuseppe Giordan (University of Padua, Italy) and
Andrew P. Lynch (University of Sydney, Australia)

The topic of interreligious dialogue is of critical importance at a time of increasing geopolitical tension. The urgency for developing better analytical tools for understanding interreligious dialogue is underscored by widespread concerns about religion and violence, and the security culture that this has given rise to in a number of nation states. Furthermore, globalization, technological developments, mass migration, and recent political upheavals and the narratives of exclusion that have been associated with them, highlights the need for greater levels of communication between religious groups. This volume seeks to investigate interreligious dialogue as a necessary component of global affairs in post-secular times, and in multi-faith societies facing increasing levels of cultural pluralism.

To explore these issues we propose to include articles on the following themes, from the perspective of a range of different religions:
1. Changing viewpoints and theories in the study of interreligious dialogue
2. Interreligious dialogue and politics in the context of globalization
3. Interreligious dialogue and debates about secularism and post-secularism
4. Interreligious dialogue in the context of social diversity, cultural pluralism, and multi-faith societies
5. Interreligious dialogue and emerging information technologies
6. Interreligious dialogue in an age of terrorism
7. Interreligious dialogue and migration

Please send all proposals (300 words) to andrew.lynch@sydney.edu.au

Deadlines:
Submission of proposals: July 30, 2017
Notification of acceptance: September 30, 2017
Completed manuscripts (7,000 words): June 30, 2018



Comparative Islamic Studies

The journal Comparative Islamic Studies is inviting colleagues to submit articles for publication. It is a refereed journal that is published twice a year and the timeline for peer review and publication is in the range of 3-4 months. Colleagues interested in guest editing an issue on a topic or to publish the proceedings of a conference are also welcomed.

Comparative Islamic Studies focuses on integrating Islamic studies into the more general theoretical and methodological boundaries of liberal arts disciplines with an emphasis on those disciplines most closely aligned with the contemporary study of religion (e.g. anthropology, art history, classics, comparative literature, history, philosophy, political science, psychology and sociology). Particular attention will be given to articles and reviews which reflect how Islamic materials can challenge and contribute to generic categories, theories and questions of method in the general study of religion. The journal provides the opportunity for expert scholars of Islam to demonstrate the more general significance of their research both to comparativists and to specialists working in other areas.

Articles are to be explicitly comparative in their focus and scope, and should clearly articulate both the reasons for selecting to compare certain phenomena and the theoretical conclusions to be drawn from the comparison. Comparisons may be between Islamic and non-Islamic materials or within and among Islamic materials. Some examples include analyses of Bible and Quran along with Jewish, Christian and Muslim exegesis; studies of rituals, canonical texts, myths, and ideeologies; sociological categories investigating prophet figures, holy people, saints and sufis; and comparisons of theology, philosophy and mysticism.

Attention to Islamic materials from outside the central Arabic lands is of special interest, as are comparisons which stress the diversity of Islam as it interacts with changing human conditions. Articles may also concentrate on the methodological and theoretical implications of doing comparative analysis.

New Secular Studies Book Series, NYU Press

GENERAL EDITOR:

Phil Zuckerman, PROFESSOR OF SOCIOLOGY, PITZER COLLEGE

There are more secular people in the world than ever before. And various forms and manifestations of secularity—atheism, agnosticism, humanism, skepticism, and anti-religious movements—are enjoying increased attention and scrutiny. The scholarly examination of secular identity, secular groups, secular culture(s), and political/constitutional secularisms—and how these all relate to each other, as well as to the broader social world—is thus more timely than ever. Moreover, studying secularism also teaches us about religiosity; as secularism is almost always in reaction to or in dialogue with the religious, by studying those who are secular we can learn much, from a new angle, about the religion they are rejecting.

The Secular Studies series is meant to provide a home for works in the emerging field of secular studies. Rooted in a social science perspective, it will explore and illuminate various aspects of secular life, ranging from how secular people live their lives and how they construct their identities to the activities of secular social movements, from the demographics of secu- larism to the ways in which secularity intersects with other social processes, identities, patterns, and issues.

Surveillance and Religion

This issue of Surveillance & Society is seeking papers and other submissions that examine the interplay between religion and surveillance.

Religious communities are targets, as well as consumers, of surveillance. This may occur as the securitization of religious identity. Cultures of surveillance develop with societies where religion remains a significant player and/or where religious themes continue to influence as part of the broader heritage. Political rhetoric may draw upon concepts of the eye of God, popular culture may appeal to fears and/or reassurances of a divine and omnipresent gaze. Religious traditions also have the potential to contribute to discussions of the ethics of surveillance, whether in the realm of national security, human rights, trust, privacy or human flourishing in general.

This issue seeks to explore the ways in which particular religious communities are subjects of surveillance and invites critical attention to the ways that religious communities deploy surveillance strategies.

It aims to scrutinize how religious themes circulate within discourses that attempt to legitimate or resist surveillance. Furthermore, this issue seeks to articulate particular religious and theological insights and perspectives on the contemporary debate around surveillance.



Women's Health & Urban Life

 


Papers are invited for the on-line journal, Women's Health & Urban Life. Manuscripts may address a full range of local, regional, and global health topics as they pertain to women’s and children's health, including SOGI (sexual orientation and gender identity). We particularly welcome papers that address the structural and social determinants of health and the dimensions of gender, social class, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, national affiliation and other social locations. We also welcome manuscripts that address issues relating to public education as well as health care systems, programs, and services that address (or fail to address) the specific needs of diverse groups living and working in urban or urbanizing areas. The aim of the journal is to provide a vehicle for innovative critical thinking and action to promote social justice and policy change in the area of women’s health.
