Religious Studies Opportunities Digest – 28 November 2017

Welcome to the latest RSP opportunities digest – apologies for missing last week – where you will find details of five conference calls for papers, 2 job opportunities, and 2 call for papers for  journals. If you come across any opportunities of relevance to the global RS community, or if you want to promote anything yourself, then simply send an email to and we’ll see what we can do.

Thank you so much 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 15) 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. Particularly with the ‘festive season’ coming up, it couldn’t be easier to be part of the solution and not the problem!
