CO-SPONSORED SESSION: Religion and Disability Studies Unit and Religion and Science Fiction Unit

Call for Proposals

We seek proposals that engage science-fictional imaginings of the dis/abled body in tandem with theories or tropes of religion and/or science fiction. We are receptive to a wide range of critical approaches that engage issues of disability in catastrophic situations like a post-apocalyptic world, alien invasion, or a pandemic.
