|Women of Color Scholarship, Teaching, and Activism|
Call for Proposals
Scholarship, teaching, and activism are the foci that tie together this year’s call for papers for this Group. We invite papers and panel proposals on the following topics:
This Group fosters intellectual exchange in the fields of religious studies and theology as they are developing in diverse communities of color from a gendered analysis. While the AAR features Program Units from diverse communities of color, we provide a space for conversation between communities of color. This Group does not assume a prior “women of color” identity, but centers a woman of color analytic that deconstructs the intersecting logics of gender and race. At the same time, we do not hold to a “post-identity” framework and are also concerned with the status of women of color in the academy, the politics of pedagogy, and the relationship between women-of-color-centered activism and scholarship. Understanding identity as performative and shifting, we make the very category of “women of color” itself a site for political and intellectual engagement.
Anonymity of Review Process
Proposals are anonymous to Chairs and steering committee members at all times.
