Can We Be Colleagues?
Keywords:Bulletin for the Study of Religion, Colleagues, COVID-19, pandemic, Black Lives Matter, anniversary
AbstractBulletin editor Richard Newton reflects on the meaning of collegiality. Rather than a simple connection between co-workers, Newton suggests that the term is best understood as a relationship to be tended. This issue of the Bulletin reflects on the tumultuous events of 2020 and showcases the tremendous work scholars of religion have been doing in the face of the moment’s challenges. It also introduces a new advisory board while announcing the publication’s 50th anniversary, a moment that Newton hopes to celebrate— as colleagues— in future issues.
