Cognitive Science and Religion Unit and Mysticism Unit

Call for Papers: 

Cognitive Science and Mysticism
The Cognitive Science of Religion (CSR) is a relatively new and burgeoning area of research in religious studies, while mysticism is perhaps one of its oldest subfields. What can these areas of research contribute to each other? CSR offers not only the possibility of novel approaches to a long-standing topic in the field, but has also produced theories of religion that may be germane to the study of mysticism. Alternatively, mysticism might suggest new avenues of research for scholars working in CSR. This session proposes a conversation between these domains, and welcomes proposals on areas of potential convergence and collaboration.

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