Within an era of growing reliance on digital technologies to instantly and effectively express our beliefs, values and allegiances, the interest in digital methodologies among sociologists of religion continues to increase. Digital Methodologies in the Sociology of Religion addresses a gap in the literature for a text that explores the epistemological underpinnings and rationale for the use of digital methodologies. It considers the implementation difficulties of researching religion online and reflects on the ethical dilemmas faced by sociologists of religion when using digital research methods. In doing so it sets a precedent that future scholars can utilise and follow. This pioneering volume brings together established and emerging scholars, including William Bainbridge, Heidi Campbell, and Paul Weller, to consider the methodological issues associated with the sociology of religion. Global case studies draw on, for example, the use of social media as a method for researching discrimination on the basis of religious or non-religious belief, 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. Digital Methodologies in the Sociology of Religion is ideal for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers employing digital methodologies within their own research.Show more
