Series Editor: Elizabeth Castelli
Religion/Culture/Critique is a series devoted to publishing work that addresses religion’s centrality to a wide range of settings and debates, both contemporary and historical, and that critically engages the category of “religion” itself. This series is conceived as a place where readers will be invited to explore how “religion”—whether embedded in texts, practices, communities, or ideologies—intersects with social and political interests, institutions, and identities.
