|Bioethics and Religion|
Call for Proposals
This Group invites proposals in the area of bioethics and religion. We will consider all submissions; however, we encourage papers that engage topics of religion as it relates to healthcare, healthcare reform, politics, and justice. We especially invite proposals that explore traditionally marginalized religious voices, gender and justice, socioeconomic issues and justice, or race and justice.
This Group offers a unique venue within the AAR for addressing the intersections of religion, bioethics, and health/healthcare related matters. It encourages creative and scholarly examinations of these intersections, drawing on such disciplines as religious and philosophical ethical theory, theology, ethnography, clinical ethics, history, and law. It seeks to undertake this scholarly work by drawing on a variety of perspectives (e.g., Feminist/Womanist/Mujerista, cross-cultural, and interreligious) and to demonstrate the contributions that religious and ethical scholarship can offer to the critical exploration of contemporary bioethical issues.
