Description - Identity and the Politics of Scholarship in the Study of Religion by Jose Ignacio Cabezon

Identity and the Politics of Scholarship in the Study of Religion features some of the most well-known and respected scholars in religious studies offering critical reflections on the relationship of identity to scholarship in their field. Similar studies have dealt with these issues of subjectivity and identity in other fields, but none have approached or appreciated the special problems they present for the study of religion. Cabezon and Davaney aim to fill this gap by offering a sophisticated collection on sexual identity and gender, ethnicity, race and religious affiliations and their relation to the study of religions from Christianity to Islam to Buddhism. With a substantial introduction that draws out the main themes, issues and problems addressed throughout the essays collected here, students and scholars in religious studies and theology will find this work insightful, provocative and indispensable. Sheila Greeve Davaney, Jose Ignacio Cabezon, Francisca Cho, Pamela Eisenbaum, Francis X. Clooney, Rita Gross, Tazim Kassam, Marc Ellis, Jeffrey Kripal, Kwasi Wiredu
