CALL FOR PAPERS: RELIGIOUS NETWORKS IN ASIA AND BEYOND
RELIGIOUS NETWORKS IN ASIA AND BEYOND
Guest editor Peter van der Veer, Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity.
While there has been some attention in the literature to Islamic Da’wa and Christian Evangelicalism there has not been enough work that goes beyond the study of a particular religion to develop comparative perspectives on religious globalization. This special number of Encounters will examine the expansion of religious connectivity and communication in Asia. Papers can be written from a variety of perspectives, but should take Asia (including West-Asia or the Middle East) as their geographical starting point, even when the religious movements under study are globally organized with nodal points in Europe or the USA. We are also open to reviewing papers focusing on state policies concerning proselytizing and the debate about religious freedom. Please submit your paper (5,000 to 10,000 words) electronically in MS Word format to vanderVeer@mmg.mpg.de by April 15, 2011.
