The University of Leeds is looking for contributors to a new and exciting handbook on the topic of Religion, Gender and Society. Underpinning the volume, is an awareness that it is impossible for scholars, activists and policy makers to understand and explain contemporary societies and to contribute towards positive social change unless attention is paid to the role that religion plays in shaping gender identities. This handbook will provide a survey of the current state of research on religions, gender and society. Its aim will be to make a major contribution to the research agenda for the next 5-7 years, to redefine existing areas within the context of international research, and to highlight emerging and cutting edge areas.
If you are interesting in being considered, please send a short abstract/chapter outline to Dr Caroline Starkey (email@example.com) by Monday 1st April 2019. Final chapters will be due in autumn/winter 2019, with publication planned for mid-2020.
