Call for Proposals

For a possible co-sponsored session with the Religion and Cities Unit and the Transformative Scholarship and Pedagogies Unit, we seek papers that focus on teaching religion with a focus on local cities and community engagement. We invite proposals that examine the intersections between the study of religion and cities and the ways we teach it. How does the study of religion in particular cities challenge and expand traditional academic epistemologies, methods, and boundaries? In what ways do our pedagogical approaches and strategies engage local communities, urban contexts, and the issues that religious communities encounter or address in cities (e.g. gentrification, violence, homelessness/housing crisis, immigration)? How are theory and practice brought together in the study of religion and cities and in course design?? What are our goals and aims for scholarship and pedagogies that examine religion and cities?
