Editor-in-Chief Martha Frederiks and Lucien van Liere

Exchange. Journal of Contemporary Christianities in Context is a peer-reviewed journal that provides a forum for multidisciplinary research into the dynamics of Christianities worldwide. The journal focuses on Christianities’ contemporary exchanges and transformations within cultural, socio-economic, political and religious milieus. Though the focus of the journal is on contemporary Christianities, articles that discuss longitudinal perspectives on present-day Christianities and/or study contemporary Christianities’ connectivities with the past are also welcomed. The scope includes developments and new trajectories within intercultural theology, interreligious dialogue, missiology and ecumenics.

Call for Papers
I. Contentious practices of the contemporary missionary movement
Studies of the missionary movement abound, but the critical assessment of missionary endeavors is mainly confined to the colonial period. While academic publications discussing contemporary mission exist, they are mainly celebratory; the contemporary missionary movement is rarely studied in a critical manner. Yet there are numerous issues arising from the contemporary missionary movement that require critical inquiry. To name just a few: missionary families working for faith missions who live on the verge of poverty because pledged donations haven’t materialized, disproportionate missionary presence in a certain regions (e.g. Papua New Guinea, Kazakhstan), proselytism and mission-induced fragmentation of the Christian landscape (e.g. in the Balkans and the Middle East), missionary endeavors that flout ethical concerns in the name of mission and vocation (e.g. John Allen Chau) etc.
Deadline for full papers: October 1 2019.

II. Christian communities and contemporary challenges in the Middle East
The Middle East is facing rapidly changing political, social and religious landscapes. Violent conflict, economic despair, religious extremism, refugee flows and migration are only some of the issues that impact the position and role of churches and Christian organizations in Middle Eastern societies. For this Exchange-special we invite articles addressing the (theological, political, literary etc.) responses by Middle Eastern churches and Christian organizations to current social, religious and political issues facing the region.
Deadline for full papers: 1 December 2019.

The International Journal of Asian Christianity is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the scholarly examination of Christianity in Asia and of Asian Christian diaspora in the West and elsewhere. While other major Asian religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam have received great deal of international scholarly attention, Christianity is relatively neglected as a subject of study. This journal intends to rectify this neglect by providing a multidisciplinary forum for the examination of Asian Christianity from sociological, anthropological, comparative religion, religious studies, theological, historical and similar perspectives and link such studies to emerging trends in the social sciences such as migration studies, identities, minorities, secularization, fundamentalism, development, and the political roles of religion.
In the diverse and plural contexts of Asian societies and cultures, Christianity has embedded itself in complex ways giving rise to historically particular Christian communities with their own locally and regionally prolific variants of myth, tradition and culture as well as specific engagements with altering economic and political realities. This unique journal creates a space previously unavailable to examine these dense and sophisticated linkages of religion and culture both in their rich distinctiveness as well as in a cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary perspective allowing for broader generalizations and theorizations to emerge.
The journal is open to scholars of all religious persuasions or none undertaking serious work on the historical, anthropological, educational, theological, cultural social and political aspects of Asian Christianity and its role in shaping both the past and present Asian societies.

How has man dealt in daily practice with the uncertainty intrinsic to the future? International Journal of Divination and Prognostication is a peer-reviewed, international journal that investigates the concepts, techniques and practices and their development in different societies and in different periods. Its main focus is on Asia and Europe.
Prognostication in all its forms is an extremely diverse anthropological phenomenon, which so far has been understudied in the Humanities. The journal approaches the topic from a cross-cultural and multi-disciplinary perspective, aiming to both broaden specific knowledge and enhance critical reflection.
Published in close cooperation with the Society for the Critical Study of Divination, it builds on the work of the International Consortium for Research in the Humanities at Erlangen University on “Fate, Freedom, and Prognostication – Strategies for Coping with the Future in East Asia and Europe”, thus providing a platform for scholars world-wide to present and connect their research on a subject of ever-growing importance for a wide variety of disciplines.

Editor-in-Chief Yannick Fer

The peer-reviewed journal Social Sciences and Missions provides a forum for exploration of the social and political influence of Christian missions worldwide. The journal does not aim at studying missions for themselves, but rather as "total social facts", an idiom, which history, anthropology, sociology or political science can use to analyse reality and give it meaning. Christian missions represent a unique site of observation for the study of a great number of valuable themes, such as: contemporary and past North-South relationships, not least the history of empire and of the post-colonial period; religious and cultural pluralism in contemporary societies and the regulation of religious expressions in the public space; the evolution of religious organizational models and religion’s links to social work, sport, music and systems of thoughts. Social Sciences & Missions accepts articles in English and in French.
