Alison Robertson [+-]
The Open University
Alison Robertson is a research associate with at the Open University. She is interested in the places where the lines commonly drawn between categories (such as ‘religious’ and ‘non-religious’) become blurred or ambiguous and in how such blurring affects the ways people look at the world. Her research interests, other than kink, include lived and personal religion, edgework, and self-inflicted or positive experiences of pain.

Description

Chapter 10 presents the idea of BDSM as a gestalt, involved in a lived process of religioning. It also suggests ways gestalt might contribute further to the study of religion and religious practice.
