Chapter Summary

During the 2013-14 academic years, the author's department advertised a tenure-track position in what we called "Religion, Global Conflict, and Law". While the author and his group had a number of strong applicants, the author admits that he was surprised by how few people applied to this position. According to the author, the department probably stumped many possible applicants by failing to reproduce the dominant taxonomies in the field, by not specifying which world religion they were focusing on or by not saying they needed an Americanist or a ritual specialist. In other words, they swam against the taken for-granted way in which members of the field divide up the pie of human actions and organizations.

Keywords: global conflict; human actions; human organizations; law; religion; ritual specialist
