1The International Association for the study of Religion and Gender is the outcome of a three years networking programme called ‘Interdisciplinary Innovations in the Study of Religion and Gender: Postcolonial, Post-secular and Queer Perspectives’. The programme brought together some of the leading scholars in the field with the objective of developing research project proposals and grant applications and establishing a structural research network for the study of religion and gender.

2IARG, which includes the most relevant research centres and scholars active in the field of religion and gender, was launched in February 2015. The association organizes a biannual conference, and the website operates as a platform for networking and collecting information on call for papers, projects, and people in the field. The blog section provides updated and regular information on the most recent books and articles, and call for paper for collective edited publications. Moreover, the IARG publishes the open access peer-reviewed journal Religion and Gender, accessible from the same website. It is the first refereed online international journal dedicated to the systematic study of gender and religion in an interdisciplinary perspective, and it is published twice a year.

3In addition to the information on conferences and project, and on people working in the field, the website will also include interactive/virtual educational modules for students and scholars. In this sense, it aims to provide useful resources for learning and teaching, in a recent and thriving interdisciplinary field. Being extremely recent, the website has still to develop all its potentiality. However, it is the most updated and complete website for interdisciplinary studies on gender and religion.
