Religion, Culture, and History Series

The Religion, Culture, and History Series, formerly known as the Cultural Criticism Series, publishes scholarly work that addresses the relation between religious studies and cultural studies/theory. It brings new and disparate voices into the academic debate on issues related to the interdependence of cultural and religious phenomena. By emphasizing the religious dimensions of culture and the cultural dimensions of religion, the series promotes a widening and deepening of the study of popular culture and cultural theory. Generally, the Religion, Culture, and History Series aims at: 1) A close reading of a cultural text or lived experience; 2) Critiquing existing representations of cultural phenomena and practices; and 3) Constructing alternative and oppositional cultural practices.
