Religion and Economy Unit and Religion and Memory Unit

Call for Proposals for November Meeting

The Religion and Economy Unit and Religion and Memory Unit invite paper or panel proposals on the “costs of memory.” Inspired by the metaphor for things that are painful and costly for victims to remember and articulate, we invite proposals studying religion and the capital costs of remembering and the ways that the economies of religion and memory are tied to power. We invite proposals focusing on examples in any time period or geographic location.
