Welcome to AnthroCyBib, the Anthropology of Christianity Bibliographic Blog; founded in October 2011 by Jon Bialecki (UCSD) and James Bielo (Miami University, Ohio). Naomi Haynes (University of Edinburgh) and Tom Boylston (London School of Economics) joined as co-curators of the site in November 2011 and March 2013, respectively.

AnthroCyBib is a resource for those who wish to stay updated on scholarly articles, book chapters, and monographs contributing to, or in dialogue with, the Anthropology of Christianity, one of the fastest growing sub-disciplines in contemporary anthropology. Because Christianity is attracting so much ethnographic and theoretical attention, remaining current on new material is increasingly difficult. For this reason we find it valuable to have a single site where relevant work can be announced and searched via several tags (author, geographic area, variant of Christianity, theoretical focus, and key words). In January 2013 the site expanded to include reviews of books and conference reports, and in May 2013 added a Teaching Archive. AnthroCyBib uses an attribution, non-commercial, share-alike creative commons license, which is outlined in our AnthroCyBib – Reviewer Guidelines.

AnthroCyBib is akin to a tmblr style blog where new material is posted as we become aware of it. With time, we hope to create a back catalog of material published prior to 2011. For now, we recommend that those who wish to learn how the field has developed consult some of the existing literature reviews that are out there.

If you’d like to contact any of us directly in order to alert us to new publications, provide feedback or inquire about reviewing a book, feel free to send us an email: Jon Bialecki <jbialecki@ucsd.edu>, James Bielo <bielojs@miamioh.edu>, Naomi Haynes <Naomi.Haynes@ed.ac.uk>, and Tom Boylston <T.A.Boylston@lse.ac.uk>.
