Jennifer Banks

Executive Editor for Religion

I oversee a wide-ranging, interdisciplinary list in the humanities that has included books on religion, classics, philosophy, literature, and intellectual and cultural history, with a strong literary dimension and with occasional intersections with psychology. I am particularly interested in imaginative, well-written work that privileges subjects over disciplines in such areas as world religions, history, biography, ethics, moral psychology, the psychology of religion, and the philosophy of religion. At the heart of my list are questions of religious transformation and creativity, from the individual to the societal level.

My authors have included Leo Damrosch, Harold Bloom, Leila Ahmed, Garry Wills, Christian Wiman, David Kastan, Robert Louis Wilken, Willie James Jennings, Paula Fredriksen, Miroslav Volf, David Bentley Hart, Stephen Batchelor, Thomas Tweed, Judson Brewer, Omid Safi, John Collins, Lauren Winner, Angelika Neuwirth, Michael Roth, and Evan Thompson, among many others.
