CO-SPONSORED SESSION: African Diaspora Religions Unit and North American Hinduism Unit

Call for Papers: 

● Sensing the Sacred: Africana and Hindu Religious Engagements with the Sensual World
Presentations for this session might include comparative approaches to African diaspora and Hindu ritual practices in North America and the Caribbean, especially vis-à-vis sensory experience – touch, taste, movement, visual aesthetics, and smell. Discussions of food as well as the ritual use of spit are appropriate, as are examinations of Hindu spiritualities in the African diaspora and challenges to anti-Black racism in Hindu spaces.
This session is a ROUNDTABLE and not a panel with formal papers. Please submit proposals for brief presentations (5-7 minutes); presentations will be followed by extended discussion among roundtable participants and the gathered audience.

● North American Hinduism and African Diaspora Traditions: Interactions and Exchange
Sailaja Krishnamurti -
