Now Published – April Issue of the Bulletin for the Study of Religion

The most recent issue of the Bulletin has been released, both online and in print versions. The April issue brings together a set of articles on the theme of gender and religion, organized by our associate editor Kirstine Munk. Thank you Kirstine for your hard work!

This issue includes a sample of the book notes that have been appearing here on the Bulletin’s blog. We invite those interested in contributing to the BookNotes to contact the editors. And this issue includes a new feature of the Bulletin, the “Field Notes” – which will include announcements, call for papers, etc. that are of interest to the discipline of religious studies. We encourage readers to send us such announcements for inclusion in this new section as well as for posting here on the blog.
