Symposia: A New Open Access Journal

The inaugural issue of Symposia: The Centre for the Study of Religion Graduate Student Journal, published by the University of Toronto, is now available online.  Happily, the editors have decided to grant open access to its content “on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.”  All of the initial articles relate to the general theme of religion in the public sphere:
