Call for Proposals

This Section invites proposals providing theoretical analysis and diverse ethical methodologies in response to the following themes:

  • Policies and politics and its impact on gender and sexuality

  • The ethics of freedom and revisiting the Emancipation Proclamation one hundred and fifty years later

  • Michelle Alexander’s book The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness (New Press, 2012)

  • The Wire and reading different texts differently

  • Environmental ethics

  • For a cosponsored session with the Pentecostal–Charismatic Movements Group, Religion and Migration Group, and Religious Conversions Group, exploring practices, ethics, and effects of religious conversion, especially those relating to immigration, migration, and/or Pentecostalism

Mission

This is an established Section that has served scholars concerned in the field, others interested in the intersection of ethics, and other disciplines within the academy over an extended period of years. We believe it is inconceivable for any comprehensive study of religion to be undertaken without serious attention to the ethical teachings that are an integral part of every known religion. This Section seeks to serve the AAR by providing a forum for the ethical interests and issues all religious traditions address. We provide the opportunity for intellectual and academic exchange through the discipline of ethics. We encourage younger scholars and work to have a diversity of perspectives and methodologies represented from various religious traditions.
