. . . [T]hese pages give credence to the conviction that motivates them: that the study of religion, in all of its approaches, is an indispensable dialogue partner in the most urgent intellectual, cultural, and political challenges facing this university and the world beyond its walls.
—Editors' Introduction to Cult/ure 1 (spring 2006)
Cult/ure is the student-run academic journal of Harvard Divinity School and the only graduate journal of religion at Harvard University. We publish exemplary student scholarship in the areas of religious studies, ministry studies, and theology every spring.
As a publication produced under the auspices of Harvard Divinity School, the journal seeks to increase the visibility and relevance of the religious scholarship being done both at the Divinity School and across Harvard University.
It is our hope that you will turn away from Cult/ure convinced, as we are, that religion is indeed indispensable in meeting the most urgent intellectual, cultural, and political challenges that we face.
