Between Religious Experience, Materialisms, and Social Movements
  • Edward Waggoner
Part of the Radical Theologies book series (RADT)


This collection of essays is noteworthy in two respects. It is the first volume from religious studies scholars and theologians who critically appropriate tenets from “New Materialism” to argue constructive proposals about religious experience and socio-political movements. What LaMothe, Minister, Bray, and Rieger find congenial to their independent projects are “new materialist” claims about the vitality of matter, the universal distribution of agency, and the role of affect across multi-scaled “assemblages.” This volume also signals new interest in academic work in religious studies that integrates descriptive and normative theory.
