The Bulletin publishes articles that address religion in general, the history of the field of religious studies, method and theory in the study of religion, and pedagogical practices. Research featured in the Bulletin has covered and will continue to cover diverse religious traditions from any time period (from ancient religions to new religious movements), but articles published in the Bulletin are typically distinguished by their social scientific methods (e.g., historical, sociological, anthropological, cognitive scientific) or critical theory apparatus (i.e.,postcolonialist, poststructuralist, neomarxist). The Bulletin is unique in that it offers a forum for various academic voices to debate and reflect on the ever-changing state of the field, and insofar as it encourages scholars continually to engage meta-level questions at the leading edge of inquiry. The Bulletin is presently published in print and online. The Bulletin is published four times a year in February, April, September, and November by Equinox Publishing Ltd., Unit 3, Kelham House, 3 Lancaster Street, Sheffield S3 8AF, United Kingdom.

Welcome to Kelly J. Baker
The editors would like to welcome Kelly J. Baker on board as a new associate editor with the Bulletin for the Study of Religion. Some readers may already know Baker, as she has contributed to the Bulletin blog on occasion in the past. Baker received her PhD in 2008 from Florida State University and currently serves as a lecturer at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Her first book, Gospel according to the Klan: The KKK’s Appeal to Protestant America, 1915-1930 (University Press of Kansas, 2011), is a fascinating examination of the Klan’s Protestantism. The co-editors welcome her to the staff, thank her for working on this special issue on “evidence,” and look forward to working with her in the future!
Field Notes News and Announcements in the Discipline
The Bulletin welcomes announcements, including calls for papers, conference announcements, grant competitions, news items, and other informative updates on happenings in the discipline. Such announcements (like those below) will first appear on the Bulletin’s blog for timely distribution with occasional inclusion in issues of the Bulletin. There is no charge for announcements being included in Field Notes. Please email all announcements (of approximately 500 words) to the editors. Our editorial staff will also be watching for interesting items to include in this section of the Bulletin.
Call for Papers: “The Impact of the Arab Spring on the Study of Islam” The Bulletin for the Study of Religion invites submissions of 3,000 to 4,000 words for a special issue addressing the impact of the Arab Spring on the academic study of Islam. We are particularly interested in articles that reflect on such topics as the role of the scholar as public intellectual, the impact on pedagogy, as well as cultural and political analyses of Islamic communities both within and outside of the Middle East. Articles should strive to apply theoretical analysis to the topic, rather than take a normative political or theological stance (though including personal reflections from classroom or institutional experiences are certainly welcome). Queries should be sent to the editors, Craig Martin
