International Studies in Religion and Society

Editors: Peter Beyer and Lori Beaman, University of Ottawa

Volumes in the Brill series, International Studies in Religion and Society (ISRS), focus on the relationship between religion and society in international context and from diverse disciplinary perspectives rooted in social science. The aim of the series is to contribute to theoretical and empirical innovation and exploration.

The series is intended to provide a forum for both promising young scholars as well as established researchers.

Volumes may consist of essay collections or monographs on substantial subjects, but not unrevised Ph.D. dissertations.

All manuscripts will be peer reviewed. Essay collections must demonstrate a clear rationale, internal coherence, and make a substantial and original contribution.

Proposals may be submitted to series editors Lori Beaman and Peter Beyer.
