CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Ritual Studies Unit and Womanist Approaches to Religion and Society Unit

Call for Papers: 

Most socio-religious cultures engage rituals, or sequences of activities involving gestures, words, and objects, in particular spaces and places, formally and informally to build community, practice traditions, and codify belief systems. Black women engage ritual in everyday life as well as in Black women's literary traditions. This co-sponsored session invites papers that explore rituals as resistance practices, domestic practices, and womanist interdisciplinary engagement. These activities can include spiritual coping, liturgical celebration, prophetic homiletics, creative arts, and/or socio-religious ethics that take seriously the participation and appreciation of Black bodies.

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