Once relatively neglected, pilgrimage has become an increasingly prominent topic of study over the last few decades. Its study is inevitably interdisciplinary, and extends across a growing range of scholarly fields, including religion, anthropology, geography, history, literary studies, art history, archaeology, sociology, heritage and tourism studies. This process shows no sign of abating - indeed, it looks set to continue to expand.
This series seeks to place itself at the forefront of these conversations. Covering new work from both established and emerging scholars and concerned with material from all periods, it encompasses themes as diverse as pilgrimage within national and post-national frames, pilgrimage-writing, materialities of pilgrimage, digi-pilgrimage and secular pilgrimage.
