Abstract

Religion, Migration and Mobility: The Brazilian Experience offers a unique treatment of what is perhaps the most vibrant cultural context in the world. Focusing upon migration and mobility, this multidisciplinary collection examines the religious landscape of Brazil as populated and shaped by transnational flows and domestic migratory movements. Uniting the study of religion and migration in a way not previously achieved, this book stands apart from others in the field which treat religion in Brazil in isolation from migration or examine migration as something impacting Brazilian religion in other parts of the world. Religion, Migration and Mobility includes an extensive introduction and specially commissioned chapters providing accessible contributions that are both empirically grounded and theoretically informed. Of primary relevance to those working on religion and/or migration, this book will nevertheless interest students, researchers and teachers across a range of disciplines and subjects; not least, anthropology, area studies, cultural studies, human geography, migration studies, religious studies, and sociology. Concentrating upon inward migration as it impacts a variety of Brazilian religious communities, Religion, Migration and Mobility makes a distinctive and original contribution that complements yet moves beyond what is currently available.
