Call for Papers: Issue 5 (Volume 3, Spring 2017) — Faith and Engaged Scholarship in the New Millennium

 

Guest Editors: Christopher Hrynkow, Rich Janzen, Alisha Pomazon

Despite the prominence of the “secularization thesis” among academics prior to the turn of the millennium, religion is not in decline worldwide. The Pew Research Center’s (2015) estimates show that until at least 2050 the number of people practicing a religion is expected to grow globally. What is more, since the events of 9/11 the "functional secularism" discourse that is based on liberal materialism and that has dominated decision making in Western societies for the past half century is increasingly being challenged. While the precise place of religion within society still remains contested, even controversial, a new “postsecularism” seems to be emerging in which matters of faith are excluded less, and where people representing diverse religious traditions are invited to shape an increasingly pluralistic society.

In light of this context, we invite contributions from community and university based researchers, teachers, and scholars who actively and purposefully participate in community-engaged research that is faith-based. Community Engaged Research is understood to be community situated, collaborative, and action-oriented such that the research process and results are useful to community members in making positive societal changes. In this special issue we will profile a number of community-engaged research projects which explore and reconceive the place of faith within society and/or the role of religious actors in positive social change. We invite submissions from a variety of religious traditions (including inter-faith perspectives) and from scholars engaging with diverse global perspectives.
