Religion Interruptus: The Affects of Sex, Politics, and Bodies

Graduate Student Conference, Syracuse University

February 27-March 1.

Keynote: Lynne Huffer, Emory University


Call for Papers Deadline: Jan 10th, 2015

The Religion Graduate Organization invites you to submit paper and panel proposals to the semi-annual Religion Graduate Conference, Religion Interruptus: The Affects of Sex, Politics, and Bodies. This conference aims at actively encouraging interdisciplinary ways to view and examine the related encounters of sex, religion, politics, and bodies. Specifically, this conference aims to think about what occurs, and why, when religion seems to “interrupt” or “impose” upon the broader philosophical and theoretical discourses relating to bodies, politics, and sex. We invite both M.A. and Ph.D. students to submit abstracts from a variety of thematic and theoretical backgrounds.



We particularly invite papers on the following themes:

The methodological impact of Michel Foucault when dealing with sex, religion, affect, bodies, or materiality
Affect theory and its relationship to sex, bodies, and religion
How religion and sex are portrayed in visual media and culture, and the resulting political effects
How political thought is changed and reimagined through discourses of sex, bodies, emotions, and affects
When religion seems to interrupt and impose upon broader theoretical discourses
Religion disrupting sex
Sex disrupting religion.
BDSM
Religious Experience
Queer theory and religion
Queer theory and ecology
Eco-theology
Feminism
Gender
Politics
Social Science
Abstracts are welcomed from a variety of fields and disciplines, including but not limited to:

Anthropology
Art History
Art and Visual Culture
Cultural Studies
English
Gender Studies
History
Philosophy
Psychology
Political Science
Queer Studies
Religion
Sex and Sexuality Studies
Sociology
Theology


Panel submissions are greatly encouraged.

A panel should consist of 3 papers
ideally a panel should include scholars from more than one institution
We are especially looking for 1-2 panels on Are the Lips a Grave and Mad For Foucault.

Panel or paper proposals should contain the following items:

A one-page abstract (350 words for papers; 500 words for panels) describing the nature of the paper or panel. No names or institutional information should appear on the abstract to facilitate a blind selection process.
Current CV for the participant(s).
