Body and Religion is an internationally peer reviewed, interdisciplinary
journal devoted to all issues of body and religion. We welcome
English-language submissions from scholars who use diverse methodologies
and approaches, ranging from traditional to innovative, to explore
issues of “body” as a fundamental analytical category in the study of
religion. We seek to publish the widest possible diversity of critical
inquiry into the relationships between all manner of bodies; concepts of
“body,” and both traditional and alternative religious traditions,
popular culture, literature, the arts, psychology, philosophy, the
natural sciences, national and social movements, gender and sexuality,
modification and transformation, underground/alternative culture, time
periods, and regions.

The journal provides a forum for the study of all manner of ancient and
contemporary practices, concerns, ideals, and connections or
disconnections between body and religion. Essays and analyses are
capable of being delivered on a multi-media platform, assisting in
examining performances, rituals, and other topics that are not easily
captured in print. However, alternate and innovative presentations must
include a significant written portion for print, while corresponding
extra color art, video, and other media will be included on the journal
website and in other electronic forms.

Body and Religion considers submissions from both established scholars
and research students. All articles are refereed. There are two issues
per year commencing in 2016.
