Call for AAR/OUP Book Series Editor 

Religion, Culture, and History

The AAR Publications Committee seeks an editor for the the Religion, Culture, and History Series. The series is sponsored by the American Academy of Religion and published in cooperation with Oxford University Press. The deadline to apply is June 15, 2022.

The Religion, Culture, and History Series publishes scholarly work that addresses the relation between religious studies and cultural studies/theory. It brings new and disparate voices into the academic debate on issues related to the interdependence of cultural and religious phenomena. By emphasizing the religious dimensions of culture and the cultural dimensions of religion, the series promotes a widening and deepening of the study of popular culture and cultural theory. 

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, 2023.

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 2022.
