Theses on Theory

Theses on Theory Abstract These thesis statements address the ghettoization of theory in the academic study of religion, noting not only the creation of specialized venues for the practice of theory (e.g., the conference section that the theses were originally written to directly address) as a symptomatic response, but also the further isolating effects engendered by the emergence of such discursive spaces. In response to these problems of marginalization, the theses go on to propose practical methods for tactical dissolution in hopes to contribute to the further integration of theory into the wider discipline. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Method & Theory in the Study of Religion Brill

Abstract

Abstract These thesis statements address the ghettoization of theory in the academic study of religion, noting not only the creation of specialized venues for the practice of theory (e.g., the conference section that the theses were originally written to directly address) as a symptomatic response, but also the further isolating effects engendered by the emergence of such discursive spaces. In response to these problems of marginalization, the theses go on to propose practical methods for tactical dissolution in hopes to contribute to the further integration of theory into the wider discipline.
