CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Men, Masculinities, and Religion Unit and Religions in the Latin Americas Unit

Call for Papers: 

Religion and Masculinity in the Latin Americas -
This session aims to explore the co-construction and performance of masculinities and religious identities in the Latina/o Americas from historical, sociological, or ethnographic perspectives. Masculinity is historically and locally contingent. Masculinities are assemblages of discourses, bodily practices, values, and rituals that are performed in social action and institutional settings. We seek papers that consider the role of practice, ritual, devotion, embodiment, and material/visual cultures in the construction of gender identities, ideals of manhood, religious authority, and the shaping of gendered religious practice.

Papers on the following topics are welcome:
○ Masculinities in Colonial Latin America
○ Pentecostal Masculinities
○ Rethinking Machismo
○ Catholic Masculinities
○ Masculinity & Religion in the Public Sphere
○ Masculinity & Religious Authority
○ Lay and Clerical Masculinities
○ Devotionalism and Masculinity
○ Masculinity and Secularism in Latin America
○ Masculinity & National Identity
○ Queer Masculinity
