Multiple Religious Belonging after Religion: Strategic Religious Participation and Other Issues

Last month I attended a short conference in Birmingham about Multiple Religious Belonging and ways that church institutions react to it, and can learn to be more welcome to people with such dual/ multiple/ hyphenated identities or belongings.

Some interesting and useful reflections can be found in the links below. First, there is a blog post by the Comparative Theologian Michelle Voss Roberts on what Queer Theory can bring to the table, and then a link to a paper I have written which argues that a particular Western, Protestant, and monolithic conception of religion shapes the way we think and talk about this and looks to the Chinese context for ways of thinking differently about it. Hope these prove useful and fruitful for readers:
