Histories of Atheism, Secularism, and Humanism: Exploring the State of the Field

Collection launched: 09 May 2018

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. The history of atheism, secularism, and humanism is a rapidly expanding field and this collection aims to represent some of its diversity, including articles from a range of temporal and geographic locations, and from different perspectives including intellectual and social history. The articles highlight many pressing questions in the field, including which places and eras can properly be included in this history, which terms we should use to describe the field, and the ways in which time and space impact the different manifestations of atheism, secularism, and humanism.

Guest Editors: Nathan G. Alexander, Patrick Corbeil, and Elliot Hanowski
