Constance Furey’s article, Body, Society, and Subjectivity, originally published in the Journal of the American Academy of Religion, appears again as the first chapter in this new volume, Religious Intimaciesfrom Indiana University Press. The editors describe her work as inspiration for their project.

Religious Intimacies, edited by Mary Dunn and Brenna Moore, brings together nine scholars of modern Christianity to probe this in-between space. In essays that range from treatments of Jesuit-indigenous relations in early modern Canada to the erotics of contemporary black theology, each contributor makes the case for the study of the presence and power of affective ties and relational dynamics between friends, lovers, and intimate others (even things) as vital to the understanding of religion.
