Research in Contemporary Religion

Research in Contemporary Religion, Göttingen: Vandenhoeck und Ruprecht

The RCR series provides a international and interdisciplinary contribution to academic discourse on contemporary religion.

The series offers methodologically informed research on religion by investigating contemporary contexts from the perspective of phenomenological, empirical and cultural studies and the theory of religion. The focus lies both on the role of religious institutions and traditions in pluralized cultures, and on the diffusion of religion in the public sphere. Whilst also encouraging historical approaches to current aspects of religion and religions, the series focuses primarily on contemporary phenomena. In the RCR series, approaches from several different disciplines and research traditions meet for an innovative exploration of the significance and the function of religion in society.

RCR is edited by Hans-Günter Heimbrock (Frankfurt), Daria Pezzoli-Olgiati (Munich), Hans-Joachim Sander (Salzburg), Stefanie Knauss (Villanova) and Trygve Wyller (Oslo). It is open for publications both in English and German.
