Digital Methodologies in the Sociology of Religion

Sariya Cheruvallil-Contractor (Editor), S. Shakkour (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology or Edited Book


This volume considers the implementation difficulties of researching religion online and reflects on the ethical dilemmas faced by sociologists of religion when using digital research methods. Bringing together established and emerging scholars, global case studies draw on the use of social media as a method for researching religious oppression, religion and identity in virtual worlds, digital communication within religious organisations, and young people's diverse expressions of faith online. Additionally, boxed tips are provided throughout the text to serve as reminders of tools that readers may use in their own research projects.
