Intersections of Religion and Migration : Issues at the Global Crossroads Hardback
Edited by Jennifer B. Saunders, Elena Fiddian-Qasmiyeh, Susanna Snyder
Part of the Religion and Global Migrations series
This innovative volume introduces readers to a variety of disciplinary and methodological approaches used to examine the intersections of religion and migration.
A range of leading figures in this field consider the roles of religion throughout various types of migration, including forced, voluntary, and economic.
They discuss examples of migrations at all levels, from local to global, and critically examine case studies from various regional contexts across the globe.
The book grapples with the linkages and feedback between religion and migration, exploring immigrant congregations, activism among and between religious groups, and innovations in religious thought in light of migration experiences, among other themes.
The contributors demonstrate that religion is an important factor in migration studies and that attention to the intersection between religion and migration augments and enriches our understandings of religion.
Ultimately, this volume provides a crucial survey of a burgeoning cross-disciplinary, interreligious, and global area of study.
