Call For Papers

Dear Collegues,
We would like to invite you to participate in a special issue of an academic peer-reviewed Russian language quarterly “State, Religion and Church in Russia and Worldwide”. (Please find below basic information about the journal).
The theme of the special issue, which is planned as #4, 2015, will be «Science and Religion in the XIX Century», and it covers different forms of cultural interaction between scientific and religious discourses during the long nineteenth century (spilling over to late 18th and early 20th.). We will try to explore the limits and perspectives of the so called religion vs science “conflict thesis,” which has been recently widely criticized in scholarship. Despite relativistic and constructivist critique, the “conflict thesis” continues to attract both researchers and the public. While analyzing the century when the “conflict thesis” flourished, our special issue will investigate the reasons of its ongoing popularity.
We accept articles on various topics, of which some examples follow:
• Constructing «science», «religion» and the conflict thesis
• Natural theology between «science» and «religion»
• On the borders of science and superstition: magnetism, experimental spiritualism
• Philosophical perspectives on science and religion interaction in the 19th сеntury
• Scientific work in cultural setting: socio-historical and comparative perspectives

The Journal will accept original articles or, in some cases, important texts recently published elsewhere. Copyright and translation issues will be settled and costs covered by the Journal.
