|Latina/o Critical and Comparative Studies|
Call for Proposals
This Consultation, in its third year, seeks to foment new methodologies and new subjects of study in the interdisciplinary analysis of Latina/o religions, keeping pace with the vibrant developments within the religious traditions of the Americas. We are interested in the following topics:
This is a new Consultation, founded in 2009, fostering interdisciplinary and theoretically innovative analyses of Latina/o religiosities and spiritualities in the Americas. Our goal is to advance knowledge and ways of knowing that expand traditional areas of religious studies with respect to Latina/o communities, mindful of transnational and global realities. Thus, we encourage studies that explore non-Western beliefs and practices, including indigenous, African-diasporic, Buddhist, and Islam, as well as those that advance more complex understanding of culturally-hybrid Christianities. We wish to foster dialogue that is respectful of the culturally different theological understandings of the sacred within different traditional or emerging spiritualities. We encourage feminist- and queer-centered perspectives, as well as thought rooted in community experience.
