Fieldnotes in the Critical Study of Religion: Revisiting Classical Theorists (Bloomsbury, 2023) introduces students to the so-called classics of the field from the 19th and 20th centuries, whilst challenging readers to apply a critical lens. Instead of representing scholars and their works as virtually timeless, each contributor provides sufficient background on the classic work in question so that readers not only understand its novelty and place in its own time, but are able to arrive at a critical understanding of whether its approach to studying religion continues to be useful to them today. Scholars discussed include Muller, James, Freud and Eliade. This volume therefore offers a novel way into writing both a history and ethnography of the discipline, helping readers to see how it has changed and inviting them to consider what-if anything-endures and thereby unites these diverse authors into a common field.

Richard Newton is Associate Professor and Undergraduate Director in the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Alabama. He is the author of Identifying Roots: Alex Haley and the Anthropology of Scriptures (Equinox 2020) and serves as editor of the Bulletin for the Study of Religion.

Vaia Touna is Associate Professor and Graduate Director in the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Alabama. She is the author of Fabrications of the Greek Past: Religion, Tradition, and the Making of Modern Identities (Brill 2017).

This episode’s host, Jacob Barrett, is currently a PhD student in the Department of Religious Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the Religion and Culture track. For more information, visit his website thereluctantamericanist.com
