Call for Proposals

Social Scientific Research on Religion as Ethical Practice

We invite papers that explore intersections between social scientific research on religion and activism, solidarity, and social ethics. We are particularly interested in papers that analyze or use methods that challenge the researcher/subject relational frame, disrupt knowledge hierarchies, center the agency and epistemologies of communities outside of the academy, and/or explore how ethnographic methods influence ethical inquiry pursued in normative and/or descriptive modes. Examples of methods examined might include, but are not limited to, collaborative ethnography, participatory action research, and community-based participatory research.
