    This article explores an emerging body of research within geography that has engaged with religion and spirituality, as well as the important theoretical and empirical contributions of geographers to ‘transnational studies’ within migration research. It argues for the importance of exploring these two fields as interrelated, suggesting some potentially fruitful avenues of inquiry for geographers. It considers how, while geographers and transnational scholars have begun to foreground religious themes, there is little geographical work that brings these two important areas of research together. Thus, there exist few examples of research within geography that consider the religious dimensions of transnational practices and processes, or the transnational dimensions of geographies of religion. The article highlights the potential insights that could be gained from more engagement across these areas of enquiry, including a framework for analysing geographies of religion, transnationalism and everyday life.
