Abstract:

This roundtable aims to broaden a developing conversation about how sociologists conceptualize and study religion across the discipline. While a great deal of research about religion is being conducted by sociologists of religion, many other sociologists are expanding the substantive focus of the religious in sociology and the theoretical, methodological, and conceptual apparatus sociologists use to engage questions about religion. Sociologists studying religion in different sections of the discipline do not necessarily often (or ever) find themselves in conversations with others in the field who are working on topics and issues related to religion. As such, emergent work about religion remains surprisingly at the "edge" of sub-disciplinary conversations about religion. This informal roundtable will invite any and all interested sociologists researching religion to a conversation about the state of the field.
