CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Comparative Approaches to Religion and Violence Unit and Japanese Religions Unit

Call for Papers: 

Trauma, Harm, and Memory in Japanese Religions

This panel addresses ways concepts of harm, trauma, and related matters - including violence, damage, recovery, and reconstruction - have taken shape within Japanese religious milieus. We seek a broad range of disciplinary approaches. Papers may address doctrine, literature, institutional history, material religion (such as memorials) and/or ways religious dimensions of Japanese discourse, care initiatives, or other practices may illuminate categories linked to trauma. We seek work on a range of historical periods, and papers that engage broader theoretical inquiry into genealogies of "trauma”, "harm”, and related concepts are particularly welcome.
