Call for Papers: 

Charisma, Personality, and Power in African Religions

This panel aims to explore the potential of charisma, as an anthropological and sociological concept, for the critical and comparative study of authority, personality, power and leadership in African religious settings. We invite papers that provide ethnographic, historical and/or theoretical insight into the meanings, performance, and workings of charisma in various religious traditions and communities on the continent and its diaspora. Papers that explore charisma in relation to other categories of power, such as gender, age, race, and sexuality, and in relation to political and institutional structures, are particularly welcome. This session is a panel with formal papers. Please submit proposals for 15 minute papers.
