Religion and Sexuality Unit

Statement of Purpose: 

This Unit examines religion and sexuality, broadly conceptualized, and focuses on questions of why and how sex matters for particular religious persons, communities, or traditions. We welcome collaboration with other Program Units doing work in some area of sexuality. Distinguishing this Unit from other Program Units are an emphasis on empirical research and analysis and an intentionally multidisciplinary and comparative religious focus. We especially encourage interdisciplinary approaches, interest in gender (broadly defined), and strong attention to methodological issues.

Call for Papers: 

This Unit examines religion and sexuality, broadly conceptualized, and focuses on questions of why and how sex matters for particular religious persons, communities, or traditions. We welcome collaboration with other Program Units doing work in some area of sexuality. Distinguishing this Unit from other Program Units are (1) an emphasis on empirical research and analysis,  (2) an intentionally multidisciplinary and comparative religious studies focus, and (3) an interest in comparative international perspectives. We especially encourage interdisciplinary approaches, interest in gender, and strong attention to methodological issues. While we welcome papers that address theory we are especially interested in praxis‐based theoretical analysis. Accordingly,  this Unit welcomes papers  on religion and sexuality, broadly conceptualized.
