Call for Proposals

Book panel roundtable on Philip Butler’s Black Transhuman Liberation Theology: Technology and Spirituality (Bloomsbury, 2021)

We are seeking to form a book discussion roundtable on Philip Butler’s Black Transhuman Liberation Theology: Technology and Spirituality (Bloomsbury, 2021). The vision is to select 5-6 scholars to receive a copy of Butler’s book to read in advance of AAR, prepare two pages of opening observations, and then engage in a book discussion during the session that would be transcribed and an excerpt published in the journal Body and Religion, along with your prepared remarks. Instead of a paper proposal, we would like a few paragraphs on the following: Why would you like to participate in this book discussion? What is your level of expertise on body, liberation theologies, and/or topics of transhumanism? What lenses would you bring to the conversation on this book? Those selected will be contacted for an address to send a copy of the book to you by the end of April-May 2022.
