2009 American Academy of Religion – Middle Eastern Christianity Consultation

March 10th, 2009

2009 Call for Papers

Middle Eastern Christianity Consultation

This Consultation encourages papers on Coptic, Armenian, Melkite, Maronite, Syrian Orthodox, Chaldean, Assyrian, and other relevant communities living inside the Middle East or in lands of immigration. Proposals in any historic period, including the modern era, are welcome. Successful proposals will reflect theoretical and methodological sophistication, engagement with existing scholarship, along with innovative examination of practices and texts. We welcome submissions dealing with theology, religious practice, ritual, leadership, monastic practices, gender and sexuality, modernity and globalization, visual art, and other areas of general interest. This year, we also invite panels on the particular theme of religion and identity-formation within and outside the homelands.

Details are available on the AAR website.

Note that although the closing date for submitting paper proposals has already past, the Chairs of the panel would still welcome more submissions so any interested parties can still contact them directly.
