FYI, an e-journal announcement.

The new e-journal Religion and Gender is pleased to announce the publication of its first issue. This issue addresses the theme ‘Critical Issues in the Study of Religion and Gender’ and is free available at

The next two issues of the journal will explore the themes ‘Religion, Gender and Multiculturalism’ (Winter 2011) and ‘Masculinities and Religion: Continuities and Change’ (Spring 2012).

Religion and Gender is a refereed, online, open access journal for the systematic study of gender and religion in an interdisciplinary perspective. The journal explores the relation, confrontation and intersection of gender and religion, taking into account the multiple and changing manifestations of religion in diverse social and cultural contexts. It analyses and reflects critically on gender in its interpretative and imaginative dimensions and as a fundamental principle of social ordering. It seeks to investigate gender at the intersection of feminist, sexuality, queer, masculinity and diversity studies.

Religion and Gender is edited by a small team of managing editors, supported by an international editorial board and an advisory board consisting of renowned scholars in the broad field of the study of religion and gender. As an academic journal, Religion and Gender aims to publish high level contributions from the Humanities and from qualitative and conceptual studies in the Social Sciences. It wants to focus in particular on contemporary debates and topics of emerging interest. The editors invite you to submit articles, book reviews, literature surveys of discussion papers, or to propose special issues.
