The Academy Series is devoted to publishing books that originate as dissertations in the field of religious studies. The series is highly selective; only the most exceptional manuscripts are eligible for consideration. The Academy Series seeks to reflect the full range of cultural areas and methodological approaches in the field. By publishing works that originate as dissertations, the Academy Series serves two important functions. First, the series provides a venue for first-time book authors who are making the transition from graduate student to academic professional by assisting them in transforming their dissertations into books. Second, the titles published in the series signal new directions in the field and demonstrate the vitality of graduate work in religious studies. Authors who are interested in submitting their manuscripts to the series should initiate the revision process before submission to the series.
Proposals should be sent to series editor Margaret Kamitsuka, Oberlin College, Department of Religion.
