CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Religion and Reproductive Labor, Care Work, and Affective/Emotional Labor

Call for Papers: 

We solicit papers on religion and reproductive labor, care work, and/or affective/emotional labor (in the broadest senses of each of these). One way to conceptualize these generically is as physical and/or interactive labor, whether paid or unpaid, that keeps bodies and communities alive from one day, and one generation, to the next. Proposals could address, for example, a particular religious practice interpreted as a form of this kind of labor (or vice-versa), religious meanings of this kind of labor, the role of family, kinship, and community in structuring working relationships, or other relevant topics. We are particularly interested in how white supremacy, patriarchy, heteronormativity, disability oppression, and other apparatuses of inequality impose disparate burdens on intersectionally targeted bodies — e.g., women of color, lesbian-feminists, immigrants, continent faculty members, people with disabilities — who are involved with this kind of labor.

The session will be co-sponsored by the Academic Labor and Contingent Faculty Committee; Class, Religion, and Theology Unit; Feminist Theory and Religious Reflection Unit; Lesbian Feminisms and Religion Unit; Queer Studies in Religion Unit; Religion, Affect, and Emotion Unit; Religion and Disability Studies Unit; Religion and Sexuality Unit; and Women and Religion Unit.
