|Afro-American Religious History|
Call for Proposals
This Group invites proposals that explore the relationship between religious identity and racial identity in the Americas, especially those that address the following topics:
Given the locale of AAR’s 2012 meeting, the Group is also interested in proposals that address topics specifically in relationship to the city of Chicago, including those that might consider African American Islam.
The purpose of this Group is to recover the sources and histories related to the African-American religious experience, to create a forum to explore critically and creatively the history of African-American religions, and to infuse that knowledge into the study of religion within North America. The Group is committed to the investigation of the diversity of African-American faith traditions and religious experiences.
