Call for Proposals for November Meeting

The Science, Technology and Religion Unit and the Bioethics and Religion Unit invite papers that interrogate matters of religion, spirituality, or the philosophy of religion as they intersect with brain-machine interfaces, neuroprosthetics, and neuroenhancement and related technologies and enhancement processes through discursive or somatic modes. We especially welcome proposals that address these matters in light of the 2024 AAR Presidential Theme which considers violence, nonviolence, and marginality. President Jin Y. Park writes: “Nonviolence has long been a vital teaching of many religious traditions, but has the study of religion sufficiently engaged with this topic? This year, I invite the AAR to take up the issues of violence and nonviolence and explore the meanings and value of nonviolence and how the study of religion envisions practicing it in our times.”
