Jane Garnett, Sondra L. Hausner (eds.), Religion in Diaspora: Cultures of Citizenship (Migration, Diasporas and Citizenship) (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016).
“This edited collection addresses the relationship between diaspora, religion and politics in the modern world. It illuminates religious understandings of citizenship, association and civil society, and situates them historically within diverse cultures of memory and state traditions. The contributors include some of the foremost scholars working in the fields of religion and identity, whose analyses are grounded in a variety of disciplines and cultural perspectives. Through wide geographical, historical and religious comparisons, this volume raises new and timely questions about the conceptual categories and assumptions used in diaspora studies and in the analysis of transnational religion. In so doing it engages with religious and political theory and the intersections between them, illuminating their articulation in a variety of historical and contemporary practices.”
