Religion and Gender

Religion and Gender is the first peer-reviewed, international journal for the systematic study of gender and religion in an interdisciplinary perspective. The journal explores the relation, confrontation and intersection of gender and religion, taking into account the multiple and changing manifestations of religion in diverse social and cultural contexts. It analyses and reflects critically on gender in its interpretative and imaginative dimensions and as a fundamental principle of social ordering. It seeks to investigate gender at the intersections of feminist, sexuality, queer, masculinity, and diversity studies. Religion and Gender targets an interdisciplinary academic audience but also aims to be accessible to those with a non-professional interest in the field. The journal publishes high level contributions from the Humanities and from qualitative and conceptual studies in the Social Sciences. It focusses in particular on contemporary debates and topics of emerging interest from postmodern, postcolonial, and post-secular perspectives.
