Hello again, Internets! Twice in the past week, someone has mentioned my blog to me, which, of course has made me feel terrible at its state of abandonment. So let’s get back into it.
A new resource for those interested in the study of religion has just launched: The Religious Studies Project. It’s a fantastic website, with content relevant to both academics and non-academics alike. David G. Robertson and Christopher R. Cotter have been posting conference announcements and resources to the site. They’ve also launched a pretty exciting new podcast featuring interviews with major scholars. The first episode, on phenomenological approaches to religion, went up last week and is a great introduction to an influential approach to understanding religion. They’re also posting a response article to each episode that will comment or expand on what is discussed in the interview. Of course, you can subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or via RSS to automatically catch each episode.
If you have even a casual interest in the study of religion, this is a fantastic website, and I strongly encourage you to check it out.
