Welcome to AnthroCyBib, the Anthropology of Christianity Bibliographic Blog; founded in October 2011 by Jon Bialecki (University of Edinburgh) and James Bielo (Miami University, Ohio). Naomi Haynes (University of Edinburgh) and Hillary Kaell (Concordia University, Montreal) joined as co-curators of the site in November 2011 and August 2016, respectively.
AnthroCyBib is a resource for those who wish to stay updated on scholarly articles, book chapters, and monographs contributing to, or in dialogue with, the Anthropology of Christianity, one of the fastest growing sub-disciplines in contemporary anthropology. Because Christianity is attracting so much ethnographic and theoretical attention, remaining current on new material is increasingly difficult. For this reason we find it valuable to have a single site where relevant work can be announced and searched via several tags (author, geographic area, variant of Christianity, theoretical focus, and key words).
In January 2013 the site expanded to include book reviews and conference reports. In May 2013 a Teaching Archive was added, followed by “Milestones,” an occasional papers series. AnthroCyBib uses an attribution, non-commercial, share-alike creative commons license, outlined in our AnthroCyBib – Reviewer Guidelines. AnthroCyBib is akin to a tmblr style blog where new material is posted as we become aware of it. With time, we hope to create a back catalog pre-2011 publications. For now, we recommend that those who wish to learn how the anthropology of Christianity developed consult some of the existing literature reviews that are out there.
To highlight new publications, provide feedback, inquire about reviewing a book, add to the Teaching Archive, or submit a manuscript to “Milestones” please contact us via email: Jon Bialecki <firstname.lastname@example.org>, James Bielo <email@example.com>, Naomi Haynes <Naomi.Haynes@ed.ac.uk>, and/or Hillary Kaell <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
