The Nonreligion and Secularity Research Network (NSRN) recently launched its new website. “An international and interdisciplinary network of researchers founded in 2008,” the NSRN:

[…] aims to centralise existing research on the topic of nonreligion and secularity and to facilitate discussion in this area.

The two concepts of nonreligion and secularity are intended to summarise all positions which are necessarily defined in reference to religion but which are considered to be other than religious. Thus, the NSRN’s research agenda is inclusive of a range of perspectives and experiences, including the atheistic, agnostic, religiously indifferent or areligious, as well as most forms of secularism, humanism and, indeed, aspects of religion itself. It also addresses theoretical and empirical relationships between nonreligion, religion and secularity.

The NSRN has also launched a new academic journal and is currently fielding article submissions:

In partnership with the Institute for the Study of Secularism in Society and Culture (ISSSC), Trinity College, CT, the NSRN has launched a new academic journal for the field, Secularism and Nonreligion. We are are now accepting submissions of scholarly articles in the diverse areas of secularism, secularity, nonreligion and atheism research. The journal is social scientific and submissions will be accepted from all social science subjects; we also welcome relevant contributions from other subject areas, including history, philosophy, cognitive science and so on.

Full details are available at the journal’s dedicated website, or click here for submission guidelines. For more on the NSRN itself, please visit the site.
