CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Religion and Cities Unit and Religion and the Social Sciences Unit

Call for Proposals for November Meeting

Violence and Nonviolence at the Southern Border

Potential Religion and Cities and Religion and Social Sciences Co Sponsored Panel

Connecting to the 2024 conference theme, “Violence, Nonviolence, and the Margin” and our location in San Diego, we invite papers using social scientific methods/theory to explore religious expressions of and responses to violence and nonviolence in the U.S./Mexico urban borderlands. Papers might explore how religion contests or underwrites physical and symbolic violence at the border, the relationship of religion to the border’s construction of urban social geographies, or the role of religious institutions and faith communities in border cities, to name just a few possible examples.
