Chapter: 23. Significant, Significance, Signifier

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.39836


In this essay, originally a post published on the author’s personal blog, Chatterjea discusses the promise of the work of Jonathan Z. Smith for current and future scholars of religion. She challenges those thinking, writing, and teaching about religion not to revere Jonathan Z. Smith, but to “find him useful.”
