Scholars of religion and history explore formations of secularity beyond the West, analyzing scenarios of secularity in a set of regions that have largely been ignored in sociological and anthropological debates on the relationships between religion and the secular in modernity thus far. They cover religious communities and the state: fault-lines of religion and secularity in South Asia; nationalism, Islam, and democracy: secular dynamics in the Arab world; secularities in East Asia; African scenarios: colonial and post-colonial secularity versus African religiosity; and the sacred secular: secularities in post-communist Central and Eastern Europe.
