Interreligious Reflections on Immigration Seminar

Statement of Purpose: 

The overall purpose of this seminar is to promote interreligious and interdisciplinary dialogue and reflection on immigration, broadly conceived. Globalization and the ever-increasing movement of individuals and groups across multiple types of borders are fertile ground for theological and religious exploration. The issue of immigration and religion is especially timely. This seminar continues the work of scholars of diverse religious, cultural, ethnic, racial, and gender identities whose collaborations resulted in the publication of Strangers in this World: Multi-Religious Reflections on Immigration (Fortress Press, early 2015). This new seminar will work towards publication of a follow-up volume and coordinate with other related AAR program units to help address the growing interest and need for more religious reflections on immigration.

Call for Papers: 

The Interreligious Reflections on Immigration Seminar invites proposals for papers that address religion and immigration, broadly conceived, that engage two or more religious traditions. This is the fifth and final year of the Seminar, which has reached its goal to produce a follow-up volume to Strangers in This World: Multi-Religious Reflections (Fortress Press, 2015): The Meaning of My Neighbor's Faith: Interreligious Reflections on Immigration, ed. Alexander Y. Hwang and Laura Alexander (Lexington Books, 2019). This final year of the seminar seeks abstracts that addresses immigration and religion from any scholarly perspective—for example, philosophical, economic, political, theological, historical, and sociological. We are especially interested in proposals that address issues that were not addressed in the first two edited volumes, Strangers in This World and The Meaning of My Neighbor's Faith.
