Review Process Comments

This session has been revised from an originally proposed co-sponsored session titled: "Dissecting Latinx Bodies: Religion, Bioethics, and Healthcare (Co-sponsored with Latina/o Religion, Culture, and Society Unit)." The call, shown below, received one excellent paper proposal, so we have accepted that paper. We have rounded out the session with proposals submitted to the Bioethics and Religion call and the Japanese Religions Unit. Original session call: Dissecting Latinx Bodies: Religion, Bioethics, and Healthcare (Co-sponsored with Latina/o Religion, Culture, and Society Unit) The Latina/o Religion, Culture, and Society Unit and the Bioethics and Religion Unit welcome proposals that examine the intersection of religion, health, healthcare, and bioethics that focus on experiences of Latinx, persons/communities. Topics may include but are not limited to: effects of immigration, migration, and border policies on physical or mental health; histories of medical experimentation; history and experience of medical malpractice; bodily autonomy; threats to reproductive health including forced sterilization; disproportionate consequences of illness, fatalities, and economic loss related to Covid-19; racial and ethnic group disparities in health status, and healthcare access. Various disciplinary approaches and methodologies from bioethics and religio-cultural studies are welcome.
