Coleman, “Do ‘we’ ‘do’ God?”

Coleman, Simon. 2013. Do ‘we’ ‘do’ God? Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute 19(3): 639-644.

Abstract: What does it mean to talk of the religion ‘of’ a given country? I reflect on an edited volume dealing with religion in Britain and consider two related themes: the secular considered as ‘absence’ or ‘presence’, and the siting of religion not in conventional denominations or ritual practices but in spaces of encounter between religions, and between the so-called ‘religious’ and ‘secular’.
