This wide-ranging and fascinating series supplements a growing catalogue of historical, sociological, and theological scholarship in the thriving and interdisciplinary field of Quaker Studies. Individual articles will speak to the broad spectrum of Quaker belief and practice, to the significance of the history of Quaker traditions, and to the many areas in which Quaker Studies contributes to other fields in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Work on Quakerism impacts both wider church history and theological debate, as well as current themes in the sociology of religion. The Quaker attitude to spiritual equality also engages women’s studies scholars, and the Quaker commitment to peace and social justice relates to wider issues of political theory and peace studies. As the field of Quaker Studies continues to grow and redefine itself, this series will make a significant contribution to making up-to-date scholarship accessible to specialists as well as to a broad academic community.

The idea and practice of public theology has recently emerged as a distinct field of scholarship that proactively engages theology with contemporary public issues. The global project of public theology has expanded the western idea of three audiences - the church, the academy and the public domain – and their inter-relationship to multiple publics. It has now become a global discipline that intersects with the emergence of a world Christianity. Now, in the Anthropocene, those three audiences should be viewed in the light of a concern for the whole of creation, including those other creatures with whom we share life and upon whom we depend.
A public theology seeks to be in creative dialogue with different academic disciplines, including politics, economics, law and security studies, cultural studies, religion, spirituality, the natural science and the social sciences and the study of globalization. It is sensitive to the emergence of new publics that arise out of theology’s engagement with other new disciplines – like astrobiology – which redefines understandings of what is space and what is public. It is also a discipline that welcomes the expertise of practitioners reflecting on public policy.

The International Journal of Public Theology, affiliated with the Global Network for Public Theology, is a platform for original inter/transdisciplinary research in this field. Manuscripts submitted for publication must exhibit clear and sustained engagement between theology, broadly construed, and a matter or matters of public significance.
All articles undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and blind refereeing by two anonymous referees.

A Journal of Contemporary Religious Discourse
Editor-in-Chief: Gerhard A. van den Heever
Religion & Theology publishes scholarly articles of high quality on religion, theology, and related fields and particularly focuses on the metatheoretical conception of the relation between theology (insider language) and theory of religion (outsider language). Religion & Theology encourages dialogue between divergent theoretical, conceptual and disciplinary languages, with a view to reconceptualising theology (in theory and praxis) in the light of contemporary theory of religion, especially more recent social and rhetorical theories of religion. The journal invites essays that are not merely descriptive but substantially theorises the disciplinary field or topic the essay is about. The journal pursues new ways of conceptualising religion and theology as constructed academic religious discourses, as well as reflecting on new disciplinary practices. The journal functions as an international forum for contemporary religious discourse on behalf of the Society for Theory of Religion and Theology. All contributions are peer-reviewed. The journal also publishes review articles and book reviews.
