The March issue of the Bulletin has now been published and is available. Below is the table of contents of this issue, which includes a set of papers arising from the Religion and Diversity Project; a major, seven-year research endeavor centered at the University of Ottawa and largely focused on the Canadian context. The RDP incorporates the talents of established scholars, doctoral students, and post-doctoral fellows working with sociology of religion methods. These articles offer both an overview of the project and a set of samples of research that has arisen from the project.
Moving in a different direction, though no less provocative for the study of religion, this issue also includes a review essay by Michael Kaler on Jason Bivins’ recent book, Spirits Rejoice! Jazz and American Religion, along with a response from Bivins.
