Volume 1, Issue 1 (2016) Indian Catholicism: Interventions & Imaginings

Introducing the Journal of Global Catholicism

In this inaugural issue of the Journal of Global Catholicism, we consider Indian Catholicism. The five articles and one essay range broadly, from an examination of a site of pilgrimage and shared worship among Catholics and Hindus to considerations of Indian Christian environmentalism, personal narrative, feminist critique, and the complex issues associated with Dalit Catholics and efforts to “represent” them. The issue’s two themes, “interventions” and “imaginings,” speak to how the articles and essay "intervene" in particular discourses through which Indian Catholicism is “imagined.” The different scholarly methodologies and voices contributing to this inaugural issue reflect the Journal of Global Catholicism’s commitment to respecting and encouraging diverse approaches to the study of lived Catholicism.
