Dear colleagues - please consider submitting your papers to the following special issue: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/religions/special_issues/digitalmedia_sex_religion

The CFP:
With the growing interest in Digital Religion due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to promote the intersection of digital media, religion, and sexuality. Relevant questions include "How might the use of new media technology impact religious sexual norms?" and "How do religious users relate to sexuality online?", among others. The purpose of this Special Issue is to provide a scholarly space for studies that focus on this intersection. This can include, but is not limited to, research on:

  *   Religious online discussions of sexuality;
  *   Religious LGBTQIA+ individuals' use of digital media;
  *   Religious online dating;
  *   Religion and online pornography;
  *   Online sexualization of religious traditions;
  *   Digital media, religion, sexuality, and intersectionality.
While some existing scholarship on digital religion and sexuality does exist (see, for example, Mia Lövheim's Media, Religion and Gender: Key Issues and New Challenges), this area is largely understudied. Submissions are encouraged which consider previous Digital Religion scholarship. However, because of the novelty of this area, submissions from a variety of disciplines are encouraged.

Thank you!
