Aromatic Religion: Eliciting the Olfactory in the Everyday. Working with Equinox Press in the UK, editors James Edmonds and Justin Doran are soliciting submissions for a new anthology based on the teleology of scent. In the editors words:
Smell is often ancillary to sight, hearing, and touch in conceiving of what counts as religious practice. However, smell is not bounded in the same ways that the other senses are. It can sneak up on you, take hold of your senses, and move between the porousness of the world—it transcends the preconceived boundaries between the material and intellectual. This work seeks to grapple with smell, not as a feature of religion, but as its very manifestation in the world.
