New Book Series: Secular Studies

Announcing a New Book Series from NYUPRESS

THE SECULAR STUDIES SERIES

GENERAL EDITOR:

 PHIL ZUCKERMAN, PROFESSOR OF SOCIOLOGY AND SECULAR STUDIES, PITZER
COLLEGE

There are more secular people in the world than ever before. And
simultaneously, various forms andmanifestations of secularity —
atheism, agnosticism, humanism, skepticism, and anti-religious movements
— are enjoying increased attention and scrutiny. The scholarly
examination of secular identity (personal, individual), secular groups,
secular culture(s), political/constitutional secularisms, and how these
all relate to each other, as well as the broader social world, is thus
more timely than ever. Simultaneously, studying secularism teaches us
about religiosity; as secu­larism is almost always in reaction to or in
dialogue with the religious, by studying those who are secular we can
learn much, from a new angle, about the religion they are rejecting.

_ _

_THE SECULAR STUDIES _series is meant to provide a home for works in the
emerging field of secular studies. Rooted in a social science
perspective, it will explore and illuminate various aspects of secular
life, ranging from how secular people live their lives and how they
construct their identities to the activities of secular social
movements, from the demographics of secularism to the ways in which
secularity intersects with other social processes, identities, patterns,
and issues.
