Theology and Religious Reflection Unit

Statement of Purpose: 

The Theology and Religious Reflection Unit is committed to fostering broad, interdisciplinary conversations in the study of religion and theology. We aim to cultivate a site of intersection and engagement for scholars working in various religious contexts who also have interests in the wider aspects of mutual interest in our field (theological, theoretical, methodological, political, ethical). Our Unit promotes constructive work that typically includes an emphasis on critical engagement as well as conceptual and social transformation.

Call for Papers: 

● Sojourning/Hospitality (with special interest in perspectives working in different religions).

● Theological and political attachments to the past, and affective and intellectual devotion to particular visions of history.

● The politics of religion (with special interest in perspectives from different religions and geographic contexts).

● Politics of research investments in the academy: Which topics get attention? How is research financed? How are different constituencies of the academy impacted by research allocations?

● Queering the temporality of redemption.

● The limits of human agency and sustainability in the Anthropocene.
