About The Religious Studies Project

Welcome to the Religious Studies Project's Patreon page!

The Religious Studies Project (RSP) is an international collaborative enterprise producing weekly podcasts with leading scholars on the social-scientific study of religion. Since January 2012 we have released over 200 interviews (of around 30 minutes) on cutting-edge theoretical, methodological and empirical issues. Our aim is to always keep pushing boundaries, challenging disciplinary norms, and helping RS research get the increased exposure and engagement it deserves.

But the RSP is run by volunteers, and we are keenly aware that there is a problem in academia with scholars being asked to do work for free, especially early-career scholars. We want to be part of the solution, not the problem, but we need your help. In the last 12 months we've added transcriptions and video episodes, but it all takes work.

If you use the RSP regularly to support your teaching or research, please do consider signing up to make monthly donations - even £1 a month would help us out enormously. If you'd prefer to make a one-off donation, you can use the PayPal link on our homepage. And if you can't afford it, no problem - you can help by sharing this page on Faebook or Twitter.
Thank you for visiting our page - we continue to be immensely grateful for all of your interest and support!
