Editorial Activities

I am involved with editorial activities for five journals and one book series.

The main editorial task involves producing Numen, a Brill-based publication and one of the main journals in the field of history of religions. Numen appears with two single issues and two double issues yearly.

Furthermore, I am on the editorial board of four academic journals: ARIES publishes state-of-the art research on Western esotericism; DISKUS is the electronic journal of the British Association for the Study of Religion. Chaos is a pan-Scandinavian journal for history of religions. Aura is a Pan-Scandinavian journal for the study of New Religious Movements, that publishes articles in the three Scandinavian languages and English.

I am also one of the members of the editorial board of Brill’s book series Brill Handbooks on Contemporary Religions.
