Thompson (Copenhagen) Holy Land Studies: A Multidisciplinary Journal is a fully refereed journal. It will publish new and provocative ideas, paying particular attention to issues that have a contemporary relevance and a wider public interest. It is aimed at an academic and wider public readership. It will draw upon expertise from virtually all relevant disciplines (history, culture, politics, religion, archaeology, sociology and biblical studies). Over time it will deal with a wide range of topics: ‘two nations’ and ‘three faiths’; conflicting Israeli and Palestinian perspectives; social and economic conditions; Palestine in history and today; ecumenism and interfaith relations; modernisation, religious revivalisms and fundamentalisms; Zionism and Post-Zionism; the 'new historiography' of Israel and Palestine. Conventionally these diversified discourses are kept apart. This journal brings them together.
