Please join us for the book launch of Religion and Sexualities: Theories, Themes and Methodologies by Sarah-Jane Page and Heather Shipley

About this Event
This book examines key themes and concepts pertaining to religious and sexual identities and expressions, mapping theoretical, methodological, and empirical dimensions. It explores the ways in which debates around sexuality and religion have been framed, and what research is still needed to expand the field as it develops. Through the deployment of contemporary research, including data from the authors’ own projects, Religion and Sexualities offers an encompassing account of the sociology of sexuality and religion, considering theoretical and methodological lenses, queer experiences, and how sexuality is gendered in religious contexts.
Both Dr Shanon Shah, who has extensively examined queer Muslim identities, and Dr Katy Pilcher, an expert on gendered sexualities, will join the authors to discuss the themes of the book.
Dr Chris Greenough, Reader in Theology and Religion at Edge Hill University, will chair the event.
This event will appeal to students, PGRs, academics and those with a general interest in religion and sexualities.
