Prof. dr. Anne-Marie Korte is one of three executive editors of the online refereed journal Religion and Gender. This journal is the first in its kind that is dedicated to the systematic study of gender and religion in an interdisciplinary perspective. The journal explores the relation, confrontation and intersection of gender and religion, taking into account the multiple and changing manifestations of religion in diverse social and cultural contexts. It analyses and reflects critically on gender in its interpretative and imaginative dimensions and as a fundamental principle of social ordering. It seeks to investigate gender at the intersection of feminist, sexuality, queer, masculinity and diversity studies.
As an academic journal, Religion and Gender aims to publish high level contributions from the humanities and from qualitative and conceptual studies in the social sciences. It wants to focus in particular on contemporary debates and topics of emerging interest. Albeit international in scope, the journal takes seriously that it is situated in contemporary Europe. It seeks to reflect on this position, particularly from postmodern, postcolonial, and post secular perspectives. Renowned scholars may be invited to submit keynote articles on specific topics. In particular, the editorial board welcomes contributions which advance, broaden and innovate discourses, debates and paradigms by virtue of their originality, rigour and/or counter-hegemonial perspectives. All articles go through a two-phase process of rigorous peer review.
The journal appears twice a year, each issue focussing on a specific theme related to religion and gender. Past themes have been: Religion, Gender and Multiculturalism (Vol 2, No 1); Religion and Masculinities (Vol 2, No 2); Religion, Gender and Postcoloniality (Vol 3, No 2) and Pussy Riot (Vol 4, No 2).
