Call for Proposals

Trans* and Female Masculinities: This joint session of the Men, Masculinities and Religion Unit, the Queer Studies in Religion Unit and the Gay Men and Religion Unit interrogates the relationship of trans* studies and religious studies. We invite contributions with different theoretical, empirical, discourse-analytical, historical; decenter Christianity and/or Global North-based expressions of trans* and religion; and engage or respond to recent issues in Transgender Studies Quarterly (2019) and Journal of Feminist Studies in Religion (2018). Possible paper topics might include: transpessimism; transphobia in religious traditions and politics; disability and crip theory; ritual, materiality, and aesthetics of trans* and female masculinities; trans* theologies and the divine; "transing religious studies"--futures and provocations for the field.
