Religion and Food Unit and Women of Color Scholarship, Teaching and Activism Unit

Call for Papers: 

We invite papers that explore of how the work of women of color (as scholars, teachers and activists) in public spaces impacts the private spaces and lives of women. We envision broad engagement between activists, scholar-practitioners, theologians and religious scholars. Submissions may engage, but are not limited to, the following issues:

○ The work of women of color in communities facing food injustice and/or insecurity
○ The historical significance of women of color engaging in cooperative activist work (e.g., Dorothy Height’s support of Fannie Lou Hamer’s pig banking project)
○ Fannie Lou Hamer’s work with the Freedom Farms Cooperative and its lasting effects on the struggle for civil rights and/or later social justice work
○ The type(s) of strategies generated by women of color who work “in the dirt” - in farming/food spaces - as well as academic spaces
○ The ways issues of food, environmental, and eco-activism shape practices for teachers, inside and outside the classroom
○ How women of color mobilize spiritual resources, interfaith networks, and spiritual activism as means of addressing food justice

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