Forthcoming Series: Studies in Critical Pedagogy, Theology, and Spirituality


Series Editor: James D. Kirylo, University of South Carolina, USA

Until recently many scholars outside the theological disciplines were hesitant to speak of spirituality out of what Keating (2008) calls a “spirit phobia.” Yet, it is promising that in recent years that conversations on spirituality have expanded its traditional borders, and have become broader and more eclectic; that is, the concept of spirituality is becoming largely separated from simply a synonym for religious convictions. As Ngunjiri (2011) has pointed out, spirituality is now openly discussed in disciplines as diverse as leadership, social work, education and nursing. In short, while religion and spirituality have an obvious connection to each other, in recent times it has come to be seen that the former does not contain or define the latter. To that end, the purpose of this book series aims to foster the exploration of faith, spirituality, religion, and theology and its intersection with critical pedagogy, curriculum theorizing, and education in general and the overall impact on the fostering of ecumenical dialogical spaces, critical thought, intentional practice, and transformation.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts by e-mail to Assistant Editor Evelien van der Veer.
