CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Political Theology Unit and Queer Studies in Religion Unit

Call for Proposals

On “​​LGBTQI+ rights as a site of political-theological contestation." Recent years have seen a significant and concerning rise in anti-LGBTQI+ violence and rhetoric and threats to LGBTQI+ rights–from the devastating shootings at Pulse nightclub in Florida and Club Q in Colorado Springs, to the disruptions of pride events and drag queen story hours by white nationalists across the country, to the bomb threats of children's hospitals in Massachusetts, Wisconsin, and Ohio following coordinated harassment campaigns from anti-trans groups. We invite paper, roundtable, and session proposals that aim to better understand, critically interrogate, and/or offer resources for responding to that violence via engagement with political theology and queer studies in religion.
