Study of Religion and The Dawn of Everything

Tremlett, Paul-François; Harvey, Graham; Robertson, David and Cusack, Carole (2023). Study of Religion and The Dawn of Everything. Journal of the British Association for the Study of Religion (JBASR), 25 pp. 86–105.



The publication of David Graeber and David Wengrow’s The Dawn of Everything in 2021 ignited interest in anarchist legacies across the sciences. Here, Graeber and Wengrow’s attempt to reframe popular historical conceptions of political and economic progress is addressed in relation to religious studies. Drawing from a range of theoretical perspectives and concerns, the four commentaries explore some of the ways in which Graeber and Wengrow’s ideas can enrich the study of religion.
