Personal Knowledge and Beyond: Reshaping the Ethnography of Religion
Sociology and Anthropology
Over the last decade, the sociology of religion and religious studies have experienced a surge of ethnographic research. Scholars now use ethnography, as anthropologists have long done, as a valued source of knowledge from which they draw their pictures of the religious world. Yet, many researchers of religion have yet to grapple with the issues that are changing anthropologists' use of the method. This edited collection provides an overview of recent debates while also pushing them in new directions. In addition, it offers a critique of some of anthropology's reigning conceptualizations.
