The Religious Studies Project
The Religious Studies Project (RSP) is an international collaborative enterprise producing weekly podcasts and resources on the social-scientific and critical study of religion. Since January 2012 RSP has released over 380 podcasts, along with response essays broadening the conversation, with religious studies scholars on cutting-edge theoretical, methodological, and empirical issues. As of August 2021, they have over 1 million unique episode downloads. On their website, you can also find teaching resources for using our podcasts to learn more about religious studies, and our weekly digest of opportunities (including job postings, journal CFPs, conference announcements, and funding sources).
New Directions in the Anthropology of Christianity (formerly, AnthroCyBib)
New Directions in the Anthropology of Christianity (formerly, AnthroCyBib) was founded in 2011 as a resource for scholarship that contributes to, or is in dialogue with, the anthropological study of Christianity. Christianity continues to attract significant ethnographic, historical, and theoretical attention among anthropologists and inter-disciplinary scholars. To advance scholarly exchange about Christianity, our project curates multiple resources:
- A book series with Bloomsbury press;
- Reviews of single books;
- Film reviews;
- Review Forums, which features several scholars engaging with a single book and a response from the author;
- Interviews with authors;
- An archive of teaching materials with diverse resources;
- Conference dispatches;
- “Milestones,” a peer-reviewed occasional papers series;
- A searchable bibliography of article, monograph, and volume publications. For material published prior to 2011, we recommend consulting existing reviews of the field (e.g., Robbins 2004; Bialecki, Haynes, and Robbins 2008; Hann 2008; McDougall 2009, Lampe 2010.
