Religious Studies Opportunities Digest – 30 May 2019

Welcome back to the latest edition of the Religious Studies Project Opportunities Digest! This week you will find one conference call for papers, two events, and one journal call for paper opportunities.

The newest issue of Implicit Religion is out now! This issue takes an interdisciplinary look at the use of “religion” in law. It includes articles by RSP contributors Suzanne Owen and Ethan Quillen, as well as contributions from legal scholars. Check it out at, and remember that RSP listeners get a discount on subscription!
