Call for Proposals

This Group solicits paper proposals on the following topics:

  • Mesoamerican and indigenous Latin American religion and ritual in the precolonial and early colonial periods

  • Religious narratives of American origins

  • For a possible cosponsored session with another Program Unit, comprehending American religion within a truly hemispheric frame inclusive of Latin America — this may have a pedagogical dimension. We are curious to answer the questions: What are truly hemispheric and global approaches to teaching American religious history? How can scholars incorporate Latin (or Latino/a) America into our theorizing and teaching about “America”?

  • Any area of Latin American and Latino religions, past and present, as well as panel proposals

Mission

This Group explores the richness and diversity of religious traditions in Latin America, the complex and often explosive relations between religion and politics in the region, the centrality of religion in Latin American culture since pre-Conquest times, and the global significance of religious events and lived religion in Latin America. We provide a forum for scholars to address religion in Latin America and the Caribbean with special attention to their larger sociopolitical and cultural contexts. Diverse disciplinary and methodological perspectives are highlighted in presentation of this scholarship.
