Call for Proposals for November Meeting

Trans Day of Remembrance and Beyond

This year's conference follows the Trans Day of Remembrance (TDOR) on November 20, 2024, a day dedicated to honoring the lives of transgender individuals lost to violence. For a potential co-sponsored session, we invite proposals that build on the TDOR theme, exploring the intersection of psychology, trans and queer studies, and religion for trans and gender nonconforming persons. Possible topics include but are not limited to exploring queer and trans critiques of normative development in the context of psychology and religion; exploring psychological, theoretical, and spiritual insights related to the Trans Day of Remembrance and its impact on communities; interrogating and reimagining normative models of psychospiritual development for trans and gender nonconforming persons and communities; and exploring resources at the intersections of trans lives, queer and trans studies in religion, and psychology and religion for flourishing in the midst of violence. Proposals may draw on a variety of disciplines and methodologies to deepen our understanding of the psychological dimensions of the TDOR and trans experiences more broadly.
