Call for Proposals

Stifled Pedagogy: Teaching Religion and Sexuality in an Era of Censorship

The Religion and Sexuality Unit and the Teaching Religion Unit seek papers for a co-sponsored session exploring “Stifled Pedagogy: Teaching Religion and Sexuality in an Era of Censorship.” We invite proposals that offer frameworks for understanding contemporary challenges within and outside the religious studies and theology classrooms, such as political challenges to reproductive rights, undermining of trans rights, debates about "divisive concepts" and "critical race theory," and academic freedom. How is teaching about religion informed by particular institutional, state-wide, or other restrictions or debates? What pedagogical and/or political strategies are worth considering in response to these realities? We especially welcome proposals that blend theoretical frameworks with practical or demonstrable cases.
