Pentecostal–Charismatic Movements Unit

Statement of Purpose: 

This Unit provides a forum for scholarly consideration of global phenomena associated with Pentecostalism and Charismatic movements. This Unit provides an arena for a wide array of scholars, disciplinary orientations, and methodological approaches bringing together those working constructively from within these traditions with scholars considering the phenomena from historical, sociological, ethnographic, theological, and other perspectives. The Unit intentionally seeks to encourage a global and pluralist perspective.

Call for Papers: 

The Pentecostal/Charismatic Movements Group seeks proposals, and possible full panels for the following:

● For a possible co-sponsor with the Quaker Studies Group, views of how these various traditions have explored issues related to class and gender. We also would like to see proposals that focus on Pentecostalism and the transformation of the city that explore how Pentecostalism helps/hinders the socio/political issues of poverty, violence, migration crises, and ecological sustainability. We also are interested in proposals that focus on Pentecostalism and Popular Culture as expressed through various mediums such as comic books, tattoos, gaming, and other forms of visual and material culture.
