for the topical issue of Open Theology journal

Open Theology (http://www.degruyter.com/view/j/opth) invites submissions for the topical issue ‘Multiple Religious Belonging,’ under the general editorship of Prof. Manuela Kalsky and Prof. André van der Braak (Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam).

This issue will address a relatively new and rapidly growing interdisciplinary field of research that approaches hybrid religiosity through the lens of ‘multiple religious belonging’. Authors in the field vary widely in their conceptions of ‘religion’, ‘belonging’, and ‘multiplicity’, and, as a consequence, in their perception of the possibility of multiple religious belonging as well as its qualitative and quantitative importance. Contributors to this issue are invited to clarify and advance this discussion by analyzing existing controversies, and proposing useful interpretations of multiple religious belonging. In addition to the theoretical, empirical approaches to the exploration of the nature and extent of multiple religious belonging are invited.


Submissions are due April 1, 2016. To submit an article for the special issue of Open Theology, authors are asked to access the on-line submission system at: http://www.editorialmanager.com/openth/

Please choose as article type: “Special Issue Article: Multiple Religious Belonging”.

All contributions will undergo critical review before being accepted for publication.

Authors publishing their articles in the special issue will benefit from:

· transparent, comprehensive and fast peer review

· efficient route to fast-track publication and full advantage of De Gruyter Open’s e-technology,

· no publication fees,
