Series editors: Ebrahim Moosa, Atalia Omer, and Scott Appleby
As a collaboration between the Contending Modernities initiative and the University of Notre Dame Press, the Contending Modernities series seeks, through publications engaging multiple disciplines, to generate new knowledge and greater understanding of the ways in which religious traditions and secular actors encounter and engage each other in the modern world. Books in this series may include monographs, co-authored volumes, and tightly themed edited collections.
The series will include works that frame such encounters through the lens of “modernity.” The range of themes treated in the series might include war, peace, human rights, nationalism, refugees and migrants, development practice, pluralism, religious literacy, political theology, ethics, multi- and intercultural dynamics, sexual politics, gender justice, and postcolonial and decolonial studies.
Open Series: If you are an author with a proposal that seems to fit one of the Open series, please submit it to our Acquisitions Department.
