I’m convinced that law and religion scholarship will increasingly be comparative. It’s easier than ever before to engage legal materials from other countries, and doing so often provides useful insights about one’s own legal culture. Columbia’s Claudia Haupt, who also writes in law and religion, agrees, but says that we need to think systematically about what qualitative, comparative scholarship in law and religion should look like. She has an interesting post over at the I•CON blog, which mentions an upcoming meeting of comparativists at Columbia that will tackle the issue. Take a look.
