Call for papers for two special issues of Studies in Religion/Sciences

Computers in the Study of Religion - a call for articles:

Studies in Religion/Sciences Religieuses is proposing a special issue on the
use of computers in the study of religion. The theme is whether - and if so,
to what extent - computers have made a qualitative difference to the study of
religion; i.e., apart from their speed and convenience, have computers made it
possible to know anything we could not have found out by other means, albeit
slower ones?

Fundamentalism - a call for articles:

It has become a clich in journalism (a pleonastic statement if there ever
were one) to refer to emerging fundamentalism in the discussion of many
religions. However it is an open question whether the use of this term as a
blanket description is always appropriate or illuminating. Therefore while
each article should concern a particular religion or group, attention should
also be paid to how the sort of fundamentalism discussed differs from or is
related to fundamentalism elsewhere.

Articles should be in the format set out in the "protocol to contributors"
found at least once in each volume of SR. Articles in English should be sent
to Dr. John Sandys-Wunsch, 825 Alget Road, R.R. #1, Mill Bay, B.C., V0R 2P0.
Articles in French should go to Dr. Monique, Dumais, Universit du Qu bec,
Rimouski, PQ, G5L 3A1.
