THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY FOR THE STUDY OF NEW RELIGIONS
Special Rate for ISSNR Members!
New Religious Movements came into being as a distinct field of study in Western countries in the 1970s. Despite the many specialists working in this field, no international membership association was ever formed for scholars of New Religions. So in 2009, a group of individuals associated with Finyar – a Swedish association devoted to the study of New Religions – and other academicians took the initiative to form the International Society for the Study of New Religions (ISSNR).
Members of ISSNR come from different academic disciplines and take different approaches to New Religions. A shared goal is the desire to highlight the phenomenon objectively and impartially on the basis of scholarly perspectives.
The Journal of Religion and Violence supports ISSNR with a discounted rate for all members. This special discount has been made possible by Academic Publishing, Inc.
