Call for Proposals

For a possible co-sponsored session with the Class, Religion, and Theology unit, the Latina/o Religion, Culture, and Society unit, the Religions in the Latina/o Americas unit, the Asian North American Religion, Culture, and Society unit, we welcome proposals on the topic of "the Labor of Black, Brown, Yellow, and Indigenous Racialized Bodies in/and U.S. Religious Traditions." Proposals may address the following or related questions:
• How does the concept of labor, with its multiple connotations of both economic production and social reproduction, offer a useful way to make sense of black, brown, yellow, and indigenous racialized bodies' participation in U.S. religious traditions?
• What distinct kinds of labor have brown, indigenous, yellow, or black racialized people been expected to perform in our own religious communities and/or in predominantly white religious communities?
• How has labor (productive and/or reproductive) been a site for religious expression and/or resistance to oppression by indigenous, yellow, black, or brown racialized bodies?
• How have labor hierarchies and the labor of subordinated racial groups been sacralized?
• How is the religious labor of yellow, black, indigenous or brown racialized people further unequalized by hierarchies of gender and sexuality?
