CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Afro-American Religious History Unit, Religion and Cities Unit, and Theology of Martin Luther King, Jr. Unit

Call for Papers: 

To mark the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination in Memphis, we are seeking papers that focus on surveillance of religious communities including socio-religious movements in cities, making connections to FBI surveillance of King in his last year. Papers that address the ways Black and Brown activists continue to be surveilled today (including the 2017 revelation of the FBI's construction of "Black Identity Extremists") and a critical analysis of historic and contemporary religious-theological responses to surveillance are welcomed.
