The Religious Studies Project: Podcasts and Resources on the Contemporary Social-Scientific Study of Religion

Dear members,

Allow me to draw your attention to an interesting project which will be very useful for teaching purposes: The Religious Studies Project: Podcasts and Resources on the Contemporary Social-Scientific Study of Religion.

A team of graduate students in Edinburgh (Chris Cotter and David Robertson) have interviewed a number of leading researchers on various topics, traditions and problems within the study of religion and now release a podcast interview every week. The first podcast went online on January 14th and features James Cox outlining the Phenomenology of Religion. (Next to established scholars talking on more classic topics,
the podcast series also includes a number of interviews on new and emerging fields, including an interview with me on Fiction-based Religion).

Podcasts and additional material can be found here:
