Sacred Matters #CFP

Sacred Matters #CFP October 31, 2019

Established in 2014 at Emory University, Sacred Matters is a web magazine of public scholarship that undercuts conventional understandings of religion and reimagines the boundaries between religion and culture.

As a digital publication, Sacred Matters provides a forum for innovative scholarship by taking advantage of the Internet’s capabilities to deliver audio, video, images, and text and facilitating new ways of organizing and presenting commentary, opinion, and analysis.

We are always looking for contributors wanting to reach a popular audience with original ideas in a blog article format. We accept articles from graduate students, emerging scholars, and senior faculty.

With a range of blogs and websites dedicated to religion flourishing online right now, Sacred Matters has a unique place among its peer publications. Sacred Mattersfeatures articles and commentaries that bring often excluded conversations about religion, spirituality, sacred beings, and the sacred things of society to the fore. The scope of topics is expansive but culture-bound, ranging from science to popular culture; theology to sexuality; health and healing to the Internet. Sacred Matters is flexible enough for both amusing side projects and material directly related to dissertations or book projects.

    Thanks for sharing that! They are including graduate students in their CFP, so I sent a short 9 page piece on the Philosophy and Theology of “Good Omens!”

      Just a heads up if anyone is thinking of submitting: I spoke with Gary from Sacred Matters about my submission and he said

      This looks great but I’m going to have to pass. I’m giving this magazine a pause for a while so we can reassess.

      So the Web Magazine Sacred Matters is taking a break for a while, which is really too bad because my submission linked to You Tube video content that would have been perfect for an online format. Oh well …

      • Thanks for letting me (and others who read this blog) know!

          It’s on the top of my bucket list to get one article published somewhere, either on line or as a hard copy, that I can share with my family and friends. I know it will happen one day if I just keep plugging away at it!
