This special issue presents a series of articles that explore psychological and social factors that help to explain secular and nonreligious change using computer modeling and simulation methodologies, including agent-based and system-dynamics modeling.
This ongoing collection provides practical guidelines for the empirical study of nonreligious individuals, institutions and cultures, as well as exploring outstanding methodological challenges and new opportunities.
This special issue is made up of a selection of papers arising from the first conference of the International Society for Historians of Atheism, Secularism, and Humanism, held in June 2016 at Conway Hall in London, England.
Guest Editors: Nathan G. Alexander, Patrick Corbeil, and Elliot Hanowski
This special issue presents a set of innovative, early forays into an intersectional approach to studying non-religion by focusing on how secular identities interact with other social locations such as race, gender, sexuality, and space.
Guest Editors: Evan Stewart, Jacqui Frost & Penny Edgell
