Call for Proposals

This Group invites paper proposals on the following themes:

  • For a cosponsored session with the Ethics Section, Religion and Migration Group, and Religious Conversions Group, exploring practices, ethics, and effects of religious conversion, especially those relating to immigration, migration, and/or Pentecostalism

  • The history of the charismata (i.e., charismatic gifts) in the history of Christianity from 200–1900 CE

  • Theory and method in the study of Pentecostal–Charismatic Christianity, including papers that address the similarities, differences, tensions, and/or mutualities of historical, theological, sociological, and anthropological approaches

  • Complete papers session or roundtable proposals of your own design for consideration by the Group


This Group provides a forum for scholarly consideration of global phenomena associated with Pentecostalism and Charismatic movements. This Group provides an arena for a wide array of scholars, disciplinary orientations, and methodological approaches bringing together those working constructively from within these traditions with scholars considering the phenomena from historical, sociological, ethnographic, theological, and other perspectives. The Group intentionally seeks to encourage a global and pluralist perspective.
