The journal Political Theology is very pleased to announce that it has expanded its editorial team. We welcome Yael Almog and Méadhbh McIvor as book review editors, joining Jean-Michel Landry and Joshua Mauldin. We also welcome Milinda Banerjee and Hannah Strømmen as associate editors, joining Molly Farneth, Joshua Ralston, Roberto Sirvent, and Linn Tonstad. These additions will allow the journal to further its engagement with conversations in the field internationally and across multiple disciplinary contexts.
Like the Political Theology Network of which it is a part, Political Theology aims to provide a home for interdisciplinary discussions of the intersection of religion and politics, carefully attending to multiple religious traditions. The journal publishes eight issues each year with Routledge and always welcomes 6,000-9,000 word article manuscript submissions as well as proposals for special issues and special sections. Questions about the journal can be directed to editors David True and Vincent Lloyd.
