What is religion? How can this term be delimited? How do a scholar's methodological commitments (e.g., ethical, historical, literary, philosophical) relate to the practice of delimitation? Do such methodological commitments inform different approaches with which to study religion, or do they presume different concepts of religion? What might be ways of hosting conversations about these things even as scholars' terms are in flux?
