CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Class, Religion, and Theology Unit and Religion and Disabilities Studies Unit

Call for Papers: 

We invite papers on the complex intersections between disability and class which strengthen, challenge, and complicate religious, moral, social, economic, and political frameworks that affect the vulnerability of people with often co-occurring marginalizations.

We have particular interest in papers that address the following questions:
• When studying embodied concerns and responses to issues affecting vulnerable persons/groups, how do frameworks for class and disability analyses strengthen (challenge, complicate, or trouble) religious, theological, or moral analysis?

• How might class analysis provide a constructive possibility to shift the paradigm in discourses that cast disability, race, religion, sexuality, etc. as separate conversations?

• As social identity categories mutually constitute each other, and construct the meaning of bodies that are productive and those that are failures, what can we gain from intersectional analyses of class, disability, race, and others in religious and theological construction?

Proposals are anonymous to chairs and steering committee members until after final acceptance/rejection
