The journal Interdisciplinary Humanities seeks submissions for the Spring 2017 special issue entitled "Religion and Humanities." Our newspapers, televisions, and social media feeds are filled daily with stories that involve some aspect of religion and religious belief. Religious literacy, however, seems sorely lacking at a time when informed dialog is critical. This issue of Interdisciplinary Humanities invites papers that consider the role of religion and religious belief within the Humanities and the public sphere. Submissions might look at the role of religion and religious beliefs in constructing identities of gender and sexuality, in shaping public discourse around political issues, or in informing the creation of new mythologies in the gaming industry. Examinations of specific religions and their relationships to topics within the Humanities are also welcome.
