American Academy of Religion 2011 Conference

Greetings from Palgrave!
 
We have been very busy developing our bustling religion list over the past year and our endeavors have borne much fruit. We are expanding our areas to include postcolonial studies, theological ethics, classics/biblical studies, critical spatial studies, and many other fields. Palgrave continues to offer cutting-edge, interdisciplinary, and intersectional scholarship in such key areas of religion as theology, interreligious dialogue, and sociology of religion, as well as comparative religion, social justice, and black/womanist theology. Resources like our ebook platform, Palgrave Connect, and better integration of our religion and philosophy lists demonstrate that Palgrave is poised to provide quality scholarship in a variety of formats and perspectives. I encourage you to check us out!
 
Most sincerely,
 
Burke Gerstenschlager
Religion Editor
