Gender and Contemporary Millennial Movements

Harvey, Sarah and Newcombe, Suzanne (2021). Gender and Contemporary Millennial Movements. In Crossley, James and Lockhart, Alastair eds. Critical Dictionary of Apocalyptic and Millenarian Movements. CenSAMM.



Themes of gender have not been a major feature in the academic study of millennial movements. However, the diversity and potential disruptive significance of contemporary millennial movements suggest that this scholarly oversight may be worth reconsidering, particularly in light of the contemporary emphasis on critical theory and intersectionality. Therefore, this article will first broadly survey reflections on the dynamics of gender and religion in the study of contemporary religiosity before detailing a few examples of literature that deals explicitly with gender and millenarian movements.
