Critical Perspectives on Religion and Education Series

The series is interested in studies that take seriously the ways in which religion shapes the educational experience and is equally concerned with thinking back through certain religious languages, discourses and practices that might make new kinds of critiques of the educational project differently possible. As such the series is, rhizomatically we might suggest, rooted in a number of social scientific fields including, but not limited to: education, sociology, anthropology, linguistics, political science. We think, though, and this is unique, that the work of the series ought also be extended into the humanities to take into account issues and draw from traditions, methodologies, epistemologies, axiologies within, for instance, history, theology, and philosophy. The question, then, isn’t if religion is present in and relevant to education but how its relevance can be better understood, reworked, potentially challenged or fruitfully reinforced.
