Political Theology

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Political Theology.

From the T&F website for the journal:

“The purpose of the journal is to foster scholarship in the area of political theology. Political Theology investigates the connections between religious and political ideas and practices. The journal is interdisciplinary, drawing on theology, religious studies, politics, philosophy, ethics, cultural studies, social theory, and economics. It reflects the diversity of religious and theological engagements with public and political life. The aims of the journal are to:

  • Examine the explicit or implicit religious background to political movements, ideas, and practices
  • Examine the political implications of religious movements, ideas, and practices
  • Interrogate the way power operates at the intersection of religion and politics
  • Reflect on the tradition of political theology in a global context, including voices from marginalized communities and a variety of religious traditions.
  • Provide a bridge between discussions of political theology in different academic disciplines”

From the PDC website for the journal:

Process Studies is a peer-reviewed journal that may be defined as referring primarily, although not exclusively, to the philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead and his intellectual associates, most notably Charles Hartshorne. With this focus, Process Studies seeks to explore process thought more broadly as it appears in related philosophies and theologies and to apply the Whiteheadian conceptuality to other fields, such as aesthetics, biology, cosmology, economics, ethics, history of religions, literary criticism, mathematics, political thought, psychology, physics, social science and sociology. The journal is published by the Center for Process Studies.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (1971) to present.

Access Process Studies via the ejournals@cambridge A-Z or at this link.
