Call for Proposals
This Group invites and welcomes individual papers and panel proposals that address the following topics:
This Group is one of the primary vehicles for the advancement of the study of the religions and practices of Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States and Canada. As an integral player in the development of the emerging field of Asian-American religious studies, we have cultivated the work of junior and senior scholars from an impressive array of disciplines, including the history of religion, sociology, theology, philosophy, ethics, anthropology, psychology, education, American studies, and ethnic studies. We encourage new perspectives on Asian-North American religious practices and faith communities, as well as innovative theoretical work that extends the concepts of empires, diaspora, transnationalism, globalization, im/migration, orientalism, adaptation, acculturation, race, ethnicity, marginalization, oppression, and resistance. In addition to this list of concepts, this Group will explore theoretical, philosophical, and theological concepts, such as aesthetics, beauty, and love. We seek to foster and mentor scholars — junior, senior, and nontraditional — through preconference sessions, gathering for meals, and maintaining a robust listserv.
Anonymity of Review Process
