Reiner Keller: Entering Discourses: A New Agenda for Qualitative Research and Sociology of Knowledge

Abstract: The article[1] argues for a new agenda in qualitative research and sociology of knowledge. It starts with the assumption that meaning-making activities which lie at the heart of sociology’s interpretive paradigm today are widely embedded in expert proceedings and organized or institutionalized work on symbolic ordering. This holds true for the sciences or other […]

Dominique Maingueneau: Religious discourse and its modules

Abstract: This chapter proposes neither a theory of religion nor a study of data from a particular religious practice; rather, it aims to integrate well known elements within a global framework, inspired by discourse analysis approaches. I will underline some basic characteristics of religious discourse in a narrow sense, that is, that of religions which […]

Kocku von Stuckrad: Historical Discourse Analysis: The Entanglement of Past and Present

1. History: Forgetting, Selecting, Presenting Most of history is forgetting. In fact, as Paul Ricoeur reminds us: “There is forgetting wherever there had been a trace. […] Forgetting is the emblem of the vulnerability of the historical condition taken as a whole” (Ricoeur 2006, 284). One reason why human individuals and cultures forget is the […]

Frans Wijsen: Whose voice is this? The Multicultural Drama from CDA and DST Perspectives

The word ‘discourse’ seems to have become a fad in academia. More than twenty journals have the word ‘discourse’ in its title, and various book series as well. Numerous authors use the word ‘discourse’ in various ways, often without giving a clarification of what they exactly mean. Critical discourse analysis (CDA) is a more or […]

Anne Koch: Some Important Conceptual Lines of Discourse Theories in Cultural Studies of Religion

As cultural studies, discourse analysis and religious studies are all highly ambiguous terms, used to denote vast fields, I will start by briefly sketching them in the sense in which restricted and contingent way they are used here, before proceeding to discuss the potential of particular facets of discourse theory and methodology for cultural studies. […]

Erin K. Wilson: The power politics of ‘religion’: Discursive analysis of religion in political science and International Relations

That political science and International Relations (IR) have ‘found religion’ has become a common trope in recent times. After years of neglect, scholars have, so the story goes, ‘(re)discovered’ religion and its significance in contemporary global politics. This continued relevance of religion flies in the face of predictions of secularization theory, which had significant influence […]

Guy Redden: Economics and commerce

Commodification and marketisation All action has an economic basis as it requires that resources necessary to act be available to actors, and this can only take place if those resources are distributed through socially organised circulation of goods and services. Even those such as hermits, nuns or monks who drop out from mainstream life to […]

Gil Marvel P. Tabucanon: International Law, Cosmopolitanism and the Baha’i Faith

Introduction International law has, since inception, been closely associated with religion. Its founder, Grotius, relied heavily on biblical and natural law sources to demonstrate a universal law of nations;[1] while Vitoria, another jurist during international law’s formative years argued on legal and moral principles for a cosmopolitan moral order[2]. Whereas the individual person, or collectively […]

Hans G. Kippenberg: Dynamics of the Human Rights Discourse on Freedom of Religion―observed from the Angle of Religious Studies

This essay is based on a study that was inspired by the article on religious freedom in the 1948 Declaration of Human Rights and its repercussions to which, up to now, little attention has been paid by scholars of religion.[1] The juridification of religious freedom led to an expansion of the legal domain and to […]

Morny Joy: Gender and its Vicissitudes

Introduction In the last fifty years, a revolution occurred that modified the accepted meaning and application of the word “gender.” Formerly, it had functioned simply as a term of grammatical attribution, indicating whether terms, usually nouns in non-English languages, were of a feminine, masculine, or neuter gender. Yet, more recently, the term “gender” has been […]
