The Middle Eastern Christianity Unit and Ritual Studies Unit are issuing a Call for Papers that solicits proposals related to the interrituality of religious life in the Middle East—particularly of Christians with other religious communities. Topics of interrituality could include liturgy and liturgical practices, pilgrimage, or any other way that Middle Eastern Christian practices participate in, or resemble, the practices of other communities. This call for papers is open to research in all academic disciplines and all historical time periods; we are particularly interested in proposals that discuss the ways in which rituals serve as markers of identity and means of appropriation in the Middle East. Proposals will be judged based on clarity of thesis, a well-defined body of evidence, and appropriate scholarly methodologies.
