CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Eastern Orthodox Studies Unit and Religion and Disability Studies Unit

Call for Proposals for November Meeting

Orthodox Christianity and Disability

We invite presentations on disability experiences and Orthodox Christianity. We are especially interested in examinations of how the religious backgrounds, commitments, or influences of persons with disabilities have been impacted by religious commitments, religious institutions, and local parish life. We also welcome proposals that critically examine the relationship between disability and Orthodox theology, thought, practice, and/or history. Papers are particularly welcomed that confront healing narratives, suffering discourse, and religious stigmas around disabilities with an emphasis on the intersection of disability (as an identity and minority) with gender, culture, and Orthodoxy.
