Call for Proposals

This Group invites proposals for individual papers, papers sessions, or roundtables on the following topics:

  • Historiography and memory

  • Consecrating memory — addressing epistemological issues and concomitantly exploring the ways in which memory is consecrated

  • Investigating how religious languages and apparatuses function in texts, literature, film, memoir, hagiography, rituals, theatrical performance, oral history, monuments, museum exhibition, or other mediums of memory

  • Baltimore gives impetus for a discussion of the memory of slavery in the United States as often facilitated by a narrative involving North and South. While Baltimore harbor played a key role in the coastal slave trade and was the location of slave jails during the Civil War, Maryland (a slave state) had the largest population of freed people in the United States during this period – it also later became the site of industrial forms of human exploitation

As our Group employs comparative and interdisciplinary approaches to its subject matter, we encourage scholars dealing with diverse religious traditions, historical periods, and methodologies.

Mission

This Group explores the construction of narratives of the past as memory and history in relation to religious practices, ideologies, and subjectivities. The role of memory and history in the formation of religious subjectivities calls for examination within a comparative context, to allow for an intercultural and interdisciplinary exploration of its forms and contexts, and to provide engagement with theoretical and methodological concerns across traditions.

Anonymity of Review Process

Proposer names are anonymous to Chairs and Steering Committee members until after final acceptance or rejection.
