Religious Studies Opportunities Digest – 22 May 2018

Welcome to the latest edition of The Religious Studies Project Opportunities Digest! This week you will find a conference call for papers, details of a summer school, a workshop, a conference, and a symposium, as well as four journal calls for papers.

As we approach the end of the RSP year, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that we are always looking to increase our pool of interviewers and respondents, or to receive suggestions for future podcasts, particularly in geographical regions which are underrepresented in our output, and on topics we have not yet covered. If you are interested, or have any suggestions, please get in touch via social media, or by emailing

Thanks to everyone who has signed up to support the RSP thus far through our Patreon–and PayPal options. We are aiming for 100 patrons (currently 22) to fund planned developments over the coming year. See our donations page for details of how you can sign up for a regular subscription, leave a one-off donation, advertise with us, or use our Amazon links.
