Call for Papers from journal Sociology of Religion for Advanced Graduate Students

February 13, 2015

The editors of Sociology of Religion: A Quarterly Review are now soliciting essays (25 page maximum or 7,000 words, all inclusive) built on dissertations in process. Focused on advanced graduate students, the essay should speak specifically to your scholarship, yet generally to sociologists interested in religion by presenting a central idea of relevance to our readership. In addition, the essay should also reflect on the process of developing as a sociologist whose scholarship includes a clear focus on religion, which may include observations on how “sociology of religion” as a sub-field is currently being shaped, where it is heading, why that matters, etc. While the essay may address one’s own experiences and in the first person, all aspects of the essay should remain of relevance and interest to rigorous scholarship, which therefore can include things like aspects of our training, professional development, conceptual breakthroughs, and empirical surprises. Be sure to cite sources and develop ideas and arguments adequate to the high standards of our journal. All manuscripts should follow standard author guidelines for the journal (e.g., 12 pt Times Roman, double space throughout), and be submitted through Manuscript Central. https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/socrel. The deadline for submissions is May 31, 2015. Any questions should be addressed to the Editor in Chief, Gerardo Marti, sorjournal@davidson.edu.
