Publications

In addition to publishing our blog, a platform for short articles relating to academic study of nonreligion and secularism, NSRN has launched both a book series and an academic journal.

Book Series
NSRN and De Gruyter publish a book series Religion and Its Others: Studies in Religion, Nonreligion and Secularity (RIO). It considers the multiple relations between religion, nonreligion, and secularity. The series explores apparently nonreligious or ‘irreligious’ phenomena that are significantly related to religion as well as modes of differentiation between religion and its various others, often institutionalized in cultural, legal, and political orders. For more information, see book series website. For information about the published volumes in the series, see here.

Journal

The journal Secularism and Nonreligion is produced in partnership with the NSRN. This is an interdisciplinary journal published with the aim of advancing research on various aspects of ‘the secular.’ The journal is interested in contributions from primarily social scientific disciplines, including: psychology, sociology, political science, women’s studies, economics, geography, demography, anthropology, public health, and religious studies. Contributions from history, neuroscience, computer science, biology, philosophy, and medicine will also be considered. Articles published in the journal focus on the secular at one of three levels: the micro or individual level, the meso or institutional level, or the macro or national and international levels. Articles explore all aspects of what it means to be secular at any of the above levels, what the lives of nonreligious individuals are like, and the interactions between secularity and other aspects of the world. Articles also explore the ideology and philosophy of the secular or secularism. For more information, see here.
