The Bulletin for the Study of Religion invites submissions of 3,000 to 4,000 words for a special issue addressing the impact of the Arab Spring on the academic study of Islam. We are particularly interested in articles that reflect on such topics as the role of the scholar as public intellectual, the impact on pedagogy, as well as cultural and political analyses of Islamic communities both within and outside of the Middle East. Articles should strive to apply theoretical analysis to the topic, rather than take a normative political or theological stance (though including personal reflections from classroom or institutional experiences are certainly welcome). Queries should be sent to the editors, Philip Tite (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Kelly Baker (email@example.com). Online submissions and guidelines: http://www.equinoxpub.com/bulletin/ Deadline for submissions: August 1, 2013.
Please pass this along to anyone who might be interested.
