CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Men, Masculinities, and Religion Unit and Religion and Popular Culture Unit

Call for Papers: 

Religion and Masculinities in Popular Culture -
We are seeking papers for a joint panel on “Religion and Masculinities in Popular Culture.” The session seeks to explore how religious and gendered identities and practices are represented in and shaped by popular culture in a variety of religious traditions and national contexts. We welcome papers that analyze film, music, television, comedy, YouTube, and other digital and social media to explore themes such as:

○ Popular culture as a forum for men to define, defend, perform, or subvert their religious and/or masculine identities
○ Reflections of religious and secular masculinities in popular culture
○ Depictions of religious masculinity, sexuality, and gender relations in popular culture
○ Responses to the images of masculine religiosities/religious masculinities portrayed in popular culture

Proposals are anonymous to chairs and steering committee members during review, but visible to chairs prior to final acceptance or rejection
