Call for Book Chapters: The Lived Religious Lives of Women in 21st Century Britain

Little is written about the lived religious lives of women in 21st century Britain. I am describing the term, lived religion, as the ways in which people practice religion in their everyday lives. This may or may not include worship in a religious setting and can be formal or informal.

Vernon Press invites chapter proposals that look at this topic across religions and religious denominations. This may include subjects such as:

  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Prayer
  • Female Ordination
  • Navigating the patriarchy in conservative religious denominations
  • Ritual
  • Women only religious spaces
  • Solidarity and support through religion
  • Family worship and religious observation

Please submit an abstract no longer than 500 words. The proposal should also include a short biographical note. Complete chapter lengths should be between 6000-8000 words.

All submissions to Yvonne Bennett at by September 30th, 2020. Contributors can expect to receive a response from the editor by October 21st. Final chapter drafts are due on March 1st, 2021.


This proposal is due on September 30th 2020.
