Anthropology of Religion Unit and History of Christianity Unit

Call for Proposals

With the History of Christianity Unit, we invite co-sponsored papers and panels at the methodological crossroads of history and anthropology on the theme: “Of Pilgrimages and Objects: What History and Anthropology Can Learn Better Together." While the topic of “lived religion” has gained increasing currency in historical and ethnographic research, we seek to push the conversation further by identifying key elements of how concepts from the two disciplines find productive overlap in current research. Heeding to works such as Caroline Walker Bynum’s Christian Materiality: As Essay on Religion in Late Medieval Europe, we also encourage papers that draw out insights of pre-modern religious cultures around pilgrimages and objects."
