CFP: Religion and Digital Media

I have recently wrote some articles surveying the state of religion and digital media. Something that I noticing doing it is that there is a lot of work done in English, about English-speaking countries, and more in generally about Christianity and Europe/US. I really felt I needed to broaden my horizons to other contexts, such as South America.

I was thinking how to fix this when Dr. Marco Tulio de Sousa, a colleague from Brazil, came to me with a very interesting proposition to co-edit a multilingual special issue on Religion and Digital Media. I accepted immediatly and, together with France-based scholar Dr. Mihaela Alexandra Tudor, we will accept articles in English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Italian.

I’m not going to lie, this makes me quite excited and hopefully some of my readers will want to submit a paper, so I summarize here some information:

The special issue is called ““Media, religion and religiosities in the Age of Digitalization” and will appear in the Brazilian journal “Tropos: Communication, Culture and Society.”

We accept papers on a number of different topics, including digital religious practices; authority and communities in digital spaces; religion, politics and entertainment; gender, sexuality and religion; religious hate speech and conflicts; artificial intelligence and technology.

Full paper submission until December 2020 and publication in June 2021 after peer review.

You can find more info about the special issue here: https://periodicos.ufac.br/index.php/tropos/index

If you have questions, you can contact me (also by leaving a comment here) or write at midiareligiaos@gmail.com

Here’s the call for papers in English:

CALL FOR PAPERS – Media, religion and religiosity in the digital age

Reading papers is one of my favourite things, so don’t be shy and submit 🙂
