FSR Books Series Submission Policy
NOTICE TO PROSPECTIVE CONTRIBUTORS
The FSR Books Series welcomes the submission of book proposals in cutting edge research at the intersection of feminist theory and religious studies. A companion to the Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion, the oldest feminist academic journal in religious studies, this series is likewise interreligious in its subjects, transdisciplinary in its methods, and intersectional in its analyses. The editors are committed to rigorous thinking and analysis in the service of feminist transformation of both the discipline of religious studies and the institutions of religion and society. The series seeks to publish the work of both established and emerging feminist scholars in religion.
