Call for AAR/OUP Book Series Editor 

Reflection and Theory in the Study of Religion

The AAR Publications Committee seeks an editor for the Reflection and Theory in the Study of Religion Series. The series is sponsored by the American Academy of Religion and published in cooperation with Oxford University Press. The deadline to apply has been extended to June 30, 2021.

The Reflection and Theory in the Study of Religion Series is broadly concerned with theories of religion, the history and nature of religious studies, religious thought, theological investigation, and the philosophy of religion. Approaches to the study of religion or religious studies that tend to defy traditional disciplinary boundaries are welcome, as are more traditional studies of major thinkers and intellectual movements. The common thread among texts in this series is that they all engage in a critical reflection on either a religious way of thinking or a way of thinking about religion.

AAR Series Editors help set editorial policy, acquire manuscripts, and work with Oxford University Press in seeing manuscripts through to publication. Editors sit on the AAR Publications Committee for the duration of their five-year (renewable once) term. These are volunteer positions. All applicants must be members of the American Academy of Religion. The position officially begins January 1, 2022.

For inquiries, please email Timothy Beal, Publications Committee Chair, [email protected].

To apply for the position, please complete the online form. The committee anticipates contacting finalists to organize interviews in fall 2021.
