Call for papers - NEW Special Issue of Poligrafi

We are pleased to invite you to contribute to the new Special Issue of Poligrafi dedicated to the material dimension of online religious practices and how they are shaping the ways both religion and digital media are perceived and addressed in our hypermediated society.

  • The ways in which digital religious experiences are impacting the perception of religion and what religion is considered to be.

  • Reflections on the notion of material religion.

  • How community and authority are reconfigured and manifested in lived religion online.

  • Posthumanism and the interrelationship between religious traditions and the machine other.
