Class 200: New Studies in Religion
New Studies in Religion
Class 200 seeks the most innovative works in the study of religion today.
The series aims to renew the study of religion as a field of inquiry that is open in terms of disciplinary affiliation. It publishes scholars and writers from every academic division and intellectual vantage.
What defines the series are a few fundamentals: experiment in conceiving the stories that engage the past and the present, interest in questions of voice and authority, and attention to the quality of writing.
The editors invite proposals for works that augment familiar forms of academic argument, whether working with concepts or contending with an archive or anthropological situation. We are open to big claims and microhistories, short ruminations and unlikely subjects. Our interest is in books that move the discussion about religion forward and chart new possibilities for humanistic inquiry.
Class 200 takes its name from the Dewey Decimal System call number for religion.
