“Vergangenheitsbewältigung” as a Historical Quest. Free Ebrei Volume 3
Editor: Vincenzo Pinto
Remembering the Holocaust in Germany, Austria, Italy and Israel: “Vergangenheitsbewältigung” as a Historical Quest offers an account on post-war coming-to-terms with the Holocaust tragedy in some European countries, such as Germany, Austria, and Italy. The subject has attracted more attention in recent years, since the long transition to liberal democracy seems to have put an end to the main theme of the memory of the Second World War.

The main point of the volume is the making of a new generational memory after the “end of history”. What is to be done after the making of a globalised world? What about the memorialisation of the last century?

Estonia is often described as one of the most secularised countries in the world in terms of de-institutionalisation and de-Christianisation. Old Religion, New Spirituality: Implications of Secularisation and Individualisation in Estonia, edited by Riho Altnurme, starts with the question: what are the historical reasons for Estonia to be so secularised? The decisive factor in the diminishment in the importance of Christianity was the overlap between social classes and ethnicities. The national identity of Estonians became disconnected to any religion.

Second, what are the consequences? How are the secularity of Estonia and the picture of individualised religiosity in this country linked? This book provides fresh results from surveys, archival work and analysis by a group of Estonian researchers.

Contributors include: Riho Altnurme, Lea Altnurme, Priit Rohtmets, Indrek Pekko, Toomas Schvak, Ringo Ringvee, Alar Kilp, and Marko Uibu.
This volume offers original research on religious freedom from around the globe. Individual chapters address the issues related to defining and understanding the concept of religious freedom and incorporate sociological thinking into interdisciplinary analysis of this topic. By interpreting legal cases, analyzing cross-national data, interviewing policy-makers, and reviewing policy-papers concerning religious freedom, the authors highlight the necessity of sociology engaging with other disciplines in this type of research. By applying theories of religious pluralism, secularity, secularization, judicialization of religion, “lived religion”, total institutions, and others, this volume contributes theoretical perspectives, sociological concepts and empirical analyses that highlight the development of religious freedom as an area of study in the social sciences.
An Intersectional Survey of Misogyny
Volume Editors: Debra Meyers and Mary Sue Barnett
Hating Girls is a collection of cutting-edge essays addressing the pervasive problem of misogyny from an intersectional framework, particularly focused on identities of gender, race, class, sexuality, and religion. Scholars, activist reformers, and social justice practitioners offer multiple perspectives of the misogyny that dominates our culture providing both macro-views as well as case studies in the United States. This interdisciplinary analysis exposes the destructive, oppressive beliefs and practices inherent in our society and offers a progressive, equitable way forward.

Perspektiven für die hermeneutisch-theologische Grundlegung einer subjektorientierten und kontextbezogenen Korandidaktik
Author: Fatima Cavis
Im aktuellen islamisch-religionspädagogischen Diskurs ist ein Abschied von der traditionellen Art der Wissensvermittlung nach dem inhaltsorientierten Konzept und die Zuwendung zu einem reflektierten Lernprozess, der die Subjekte und ihre Lebenswelten ernst nimmt, evident.
Dieser Paradigmenwechsel in der islamischen religiösen Bildung hat bestimmte Konsequenzen – auch für die Korandidaktik, die einen wesentlichen Bestandteil des islamischen Religionsunterrichts bildet. Die Autorin nimmt diese Problematik zum Anlass und untersucht in einem interdisziplinären Rahmen die offenbarungs- bzw. schrifttheologischen und die hermeneutisch-exegetischen Voraussetzungen einer subjektorientierten und kontextsensiblen Koranarbeit. In Auseinandersetzung mit diesen und weiteren zentralen Fragen liefert die Studie die ersten wichtigen Ergebnisse für die religionspädagogische sowie die hermeneutisch-theologische Grundlegung einer zeitgemäßen Korandidaktik.

The book series Religion in the Americas is devoted to the study of religious influences within and between South, Central, Latin, and North America. A particular focus lies on the interaction of different forms of Christianity with the societies, politics, religions, economies, symbols, materialities, and cultures of the variety of peoples in the Americas. The complex theologies, philosophies, and contributions of their expressions and experiences throughout the Americas have profoundly influenced not only Catholicism but many other religions - in the Americas and all across the globe. In addition to Christianity, the editors welcome submissions on Indigenous, New Age, Africa- and migrant-derived religions. Religion in the Americas brings to the forefront new works that deal with these issues, particularly from the perspectives of religious studies, cultural anthropology, sociology, history, psychology, and Latin American Studies.

The series has published an average of one volume per year over the last 5 years.

Since its announcement by Xi Jinping in 2015, “Sinicization” has become the slogan that guides Chinese official policy towards religion. What does it mean? What effects is it having on Chinese religions? Where will it lead? This book, with contributions from experts in the major religious traditions in China, is one of the first in English that answers these questions.
From the top down, Sinicization is a project to control all forms of religion in China, even ancient indigenous forms, to make them conform to the demands of its Party-State. From the bottom up, however, religious believers are using the slogan either to sincerely attempt to adapt traditional practices to their modern cultural context or to protect their faith by offering lip service to government demands – or some combination of the two.
