This Unit supports scholarship at the intersection of the social sciences — including psychology, ethnography, sociology, political sciences, economics, and cultural studies — and religious or theological studies. Topic areas include the study of religious and theological questions through specific social scientific methodologies, the contribution of religious and theological approaches to the work of social scientific disciplines, and comparative assessments of current issues by humanities-based and social scientific methods.
The Religion and Social Science Unit is pleased to honor the AAR theme “Religion and the Most Vulnerable” and welcome papers on the following themes and topics: 1.) Immigration, politics, and sanctuary cities; 2.) Gentrification and urban religion; 3.) Religious and social activism in a Trump era; and 4.) Religion and the production of “neighbor” and “stranger.”
