Practices of relation
Most Exchanges on The Immanent Frame feature contributions by thinkers across the social sciences and humanities on a single prompt, puzzle, or question. This series takes a different approach to debate. Introduced in 2019 by former TIF editorial board member, Nancy Levene, and her colleague and interlocutor, Noreen Khawaja, the Practices of relation series is intended to stage a playful, yet serious, encounter between two writers. By centering two voices, perspectives, and standpoints, the format amplifies and extends the dialogic qualities that make TIF distinctive as a platform for public scholarship on secularism and religion.
