  • history, anthropology, and culture of cults or sects 
  • demographic studies on the prevalence of new religious or other movements 
  • policy and political science of cultic groups
  • individual subjectivity, agency, and creativity in cultural groups 
  • Boundaries between the individual and society in group and other contexts. 

We also welcome group research project submissions.
