Call for Proposals

This Group welcomes proposals in any area related to women of color scholarship, teaching, and activism. We are particularly interested in proposals that focus on:

  • Teaching religion as a justice issue

  • Service learning and activism, including subversive ways of using service learning

  • The significance of women of color in the 2012 elections

  • Community education and activism

  • Interrogating the term “grassroots” as it applies to teaching, scholarship, and organizing

Mission

This Group fosters intellectual exchange in the fields of religious studies and theology as they are developing in diverse communities of color from a gendered analysis. While the AAR features Program Units from diverse communities of color, we provide a space for conversation between communities of color. This Group does not assume a prior “women of color” identity, but centers a woman of color analytic that deconstructs the intersecting logics of gender and race. At the same time, we do not hold to a “post-identity” framework and are also concerned with the status of women of color in the academy, the politics of pedagogy, and the relationship between women-of-color-centered activism and scholarship. Understanding identity as performative and shifting, we make the very category of “women of color” itself a site for political and intellectual engagement.
