CfP: Special Issue on Religion and Culture in JHPE

By Jens Prüfer

The Journal of Historical Political Economy has issued a call for papers for a special issue on Religion and Culture. This special issue aims to explore the interplay between political economy, religion, and culture, from the near to distant past – a topic that is fundamentally interdisciplinary. Dialogue across sociology, political science, and economics will spark refinements and new insights. Through a historical lens, these conversations will contribute to social scientific understandings of religion and culture as they relate to several political and economic processes.

To these ends, the editors welcome submissions of empirical, theoretical, or methodological work, including comparative or single case studies. They encourage methodological diversity as well as varied geographic and historical scope. They are especially interested in submissions that are interdisciplinary in topic, approach, or authorship.

Authors interested in contributing to the special issue should submit a manuscript draft, in addition to an abstract, for the ASREC 2023 Annual Conference by October 28, 2022. Those selected for consideration for the special issue will be presented at a set of special panels at the ASREC 2023 Conference at Harvard on March 17-18, 2023. One author from each chosen paper must present their paper at the ASREC conference; this is a critical part of the review process. Final manuscript submissions for publication in the journal will be due by: October 28, 2023 The special issue will be published in March 2024. 

Editors are Kerice Doten-Snitker, Avital Livny, and Jared Rubin.
