Situating the framework of negotiating through space and transition in interdisciplinary studies of Muslims in Canada, the Religious and Socio-Political Studies Journal (RSSJ) - a double-blind, peer-reviewed, open access interdisciplinary journal from the Institute for Religious and Socio-Political Studies (I-RSS) - aims to provide an interdisciplinary forum for current thinking about navigating and building places as Muslims in Canada.
We invite submissions for this collection dedicated to spaces (physical and symbolic) - geographical land (nations, borders, refugees, etc.) community buildings (prayer and community spaces), and symbolic spaces (like ethno-religious identity and belonging for various Muslim communities in Canada). We are interested in topics pertaining to:
- public space,
- community space,
- religious/sacred space, and
- domestic space,
- as well as questions of belonging and “ the stranger” in Islam, specifically in relation to kinship in the midst of dis/placement and/or dis/citizenship.
Insights from a broad spectrum of areas are welcomed: philosophy, digital humanities & media studies, history, anthropology, sociology, psychology, literature, etc.Read more about Call for Papers: Navigating Place as Muslims in Canada
