Refuge and Rejection is proud to announce the release of our next issue. The main feature in this issue is an article by Brett Hendrickson and Beau Seegmiller, looking at potential contributions which the field of Religious Studies may make to the topic of refugees and forced migration. They argue that Religious Studies, as a humanities-based discipline, can help illumine the complex dimensions within and across many varied religions, probe religious factors in the conflicts at the root of displacement, and offset the predominantly functionalist approach to religion that much scholarship in refugee studies takes.
Also in this issue is a series of pieces by photographer Jonathan Moller. This photographic essay, "Our Culture is Our Resistance
Repression, Refuge and Healing in Guatemala," depicts the lives of Guatemalan refugees. Mr. Moller has also been kind enough to provide a short written piece.
Lastly, this issue includes brief, reflective write-up on the Place of Refuge series (http://www.asu.edu/clas/history/PlaceofRefuge/), sponsored by the Arizona Humanities Council.
As always, we welcome readers to join the discussion in our Forum (http://refugeandrejection.forumsplace.com/index.html) and to look back on past articles in our Archives (http://www.asu.edu/clas/history/proj/refugee/archive.htm).
