Why is religion still important? Can we be fully modern and fully religious? In this new edition, Davie follows up her discussion of the meaning of religion in modern society and considers how best to research and understand this relationship. Exploring the rapid movements within the sociology of religion today, this revised and updated book: • Describes the origins of the sociology of religion • Demystifies secularization as a process and a theory • Relates religion to modern social theory • Unpacks the meaning of religion in relation to modernity and globalization • Grasps the methodological challenges in the field • Provides a comparative perspective for religions in the west • Introduces questions of minorities and margins • Sets out a critical agenda for debate and research The Sociology of Religion has already proved itself as one of the most important titles within the field; this edition will ensure that it remains an indispensable resource for students and researchers alike.

Since the sociology of religion became recognised as a distinct sub-discipline over the last century, the dominance of approaches taking their inspiration from the sociological classics has increasingly been challenged. Empirical findings have brought the notion of secularisation into question; and theorists have sought to deconstruct how we think of ‘religion.’ This collection appraises the continuing influence of the foundational approaches and places these in relation to newly emerging directions in the field. The book is divided into four sections, each section containing one ‘foundational’ chapter written by an established academic followed by two ‘futures’ chapters contributed by emerging scholars in the sub-discipline. These chapters complement one another by placing the overview of future directions in the context of a survey of the development of the sociology of religion over the last century. Topics discussed in these chapters include lived religion, sexuality, ritual, religion and the media. Combining erudite examinations of the British Sociological Association Sociology of Religion Study Group’s work so far with explorations of the future directions its research might take, this book is vital reading for any scholar whose work combines religious studies and sociology.

This article discusses critical discourse analysis CDA) as a framework for a critical agenda in the sociology of religion. CDA uniquely brings together discursive and critical (broadly Marxist) approaches to religion, both of which have been underrepresented in current mainstream scholarship. The article argues that a CDA perspective has a lot to offer to the sociology of religion both by sensitizing scholars to the significance of discourse in creating hegemonic understandings of religion and religions in everyday social interaction dominated by the media; and by offering a framework through which to analyse the discursive construction, reproduction and transformation of inequality in the field of religion. The article discusses the concept of discourse and its different meanings, examines what being 'critical' means in the context of discourse analysis and constructs a framework for doing practical CDA. Finally, CDA is discussed as a foundation for a critical sociology of religion.

Religion lies near the heart of the classical sociological tradition, yet it no longer occupies the same place within the contemporary sociological enterprise. This relative absence has left sociology under-prepared for thinking about religion’s continuing importance in new issues, movements, and events in the twenty-first century. This book seeks to address this lacunae by offering a variety of theoretical perspectives on the study of religion that bridge the gap between mainstream concerns of sociologists and the sociology of religion. Following an assessment of the current state of the field, the authors develop an emerging critical perspective within the sociology of religion with particular focus on the importance of historical background. Re-assessing the themes of aesthetics, listening and different degrees of spiritual self-discipline, the authors draw on ethnographic studies of religious involvement in Norway and the UK. They highlight the importance of power in the sociology of religion with help from Pierre Bourdieu, Marx and Critical Discourse Analysis. This book points to emerging currents in the field and offers a productive and lively way forward, not just for sociological theory of religion, but for the sociology of religion more generally.

Grace Davie, one of the world’s most influential scholars in contemporary sociology of religion, has furthered a tradition developed by David Martin and others in comparative sociology of religion and modernity in European and international perspective. Davie’s writings on belief and belonging, particularly in a context outside active Church participation, have contributed important understandings of the cultural role of religion as memory and practice in contemporary European societies. Through her most recent work on new roles of religion in relation to the political, legal and welfare sectors of society, she has addressed debates on the resurgence of religion and the ’post-secular condition’. Modernities, Memory and Mutations presents an overview and critical engagement with contemporary themes in the sociology of religion which will inform current and forthcoming generations of scholars. Reflecting on how Grace Davie’s contributions have influenced their own work and wider debates in the field, leading international scholars engage with themes Davie has critically explored across religious studies and mainstream sociology evolving a new research agenda for sociology of religion.

Seit ein mysteröses 'Ereignis' vor mehr als dreißig Jahren das Gebiet erschütterte, ist Area X von einer unsichtbaren Grenze umgeben. Niemand weiß genau, was dahinter geschieht, aber es gibt Gerüchte von einer sich verändernden und die Reste der menschlichen Zivilisation überwuchernden Natur, einer Natur, die ebenso makellos und bezaubernd wie verstörend und bedrohlich ist. Zuständig für das Gebiet ist eine geheime Regierungsorganisation, die sich 'Southern Reach' nennt und den Auftrag hat, herauszufinden, was hinter der Grenze geschieht. Aber keine der Expeditionen, die 'Southern Reach' in das Gebiet entsandte, um Erklärungen für das Unerklärbare zu finden, hatte bisher Erfolg. Die meisten der Expeditionen endeten in Katastrophen, bei denen letztlich alle Mitglieder ums Leben kamen, und die Zeit, um Antworten zu finden, wird knapp, denn Area X scheint sich immer schneller auszudehnen. "Auslöschung" ist der Bericht über die zwölfte Expedition. Sie besteht aus vier Frauen: einer Anthropologin, einer Landvermesserin, einer Psychologin und einer Biologin. Ihre Aufgabe ist es, die Geheimnisse von Area X zu entschlüsseln, das Gebiet zu kartographieren, Flora und Fauna zu katalogisieren, ihre Beobachtungen in Tagebüchern zu dokumentieren, vor allem aber sich nicht von Area X kontaminieren zu lassen. Doch es sind die Geheimnisse, die sie mit über die Grenze gebracht haben, die alles verändern werden ... Ein fesselnder, fantastischer Roman über eine unheimliche Welt und die Fremdheit in uns. Ein Roman von der Kraft eines Mythos.
