New publication: "Religion und Gender"

The transcript publishing house Bielefeld has published a new publication entitled "Religion und Gender", which deals with concepts, experiences and media on this topic. The book is based on a lecture series of the Interdisciplinary Forum on Religion (IFR) at the University of Erfurt in the winter semester 2018/19, organized as part of the Studium Fundamentale. The editors are Silke Martin, Isabella Schwaderer and Katharina Waldner.

In public and media debates, the link between religion and gender plays a prominent and problematic role. Religious experiences and practices cannot be adequately understood without attention to the diversity of the subjects involved and acting. Yet, gender-sensitive religious studies is still not a given. Current and historical case studies on the relationship between religion and diversity take a look at various religions such as Islam as well as Western and Orthodox Christianity, and also cover a variety of media such as narratives, films, series, and reality TV.

The book is available in print and as an open access version.
