Call for Papers: 

Methodologies, Epistemologies, and Ontologies: Doing Womanist Theory and Praxis

With the growth of disciplines and our changing world, this session questions how identities, philosophies, and methodologies continue to develop over time, giving voice to the intersectional experiences of women with particular attention to the role of womanist thought. Moving from binary gender constructs is emerging as part of many conversations in women and religious studies. How do we unearth different ways of knowing and locations of doing womanist engagement in its multiple iterations in the academy and the world? What are options regarding directions that womanist thought, theory, and praxis is moving? What is the nature of the various methodologies, and intersections, and what are the parameters for who gets to use this vocabulary. This session invites persons to propose a round table or panel. Papers will be posted prior to the meeting, with presenters offering a summary of their paper to allow time for greater dialog.

Proposals are anonymous to chairs and steering committee members until after final acceptance/rejection
