This conference will address the world of print in which religions and religious practices were inherited, constructed and promulgated over the last 125 years. In addition to keynote speakers to be announced, there will be a number of special presentations. Papers should focus on and illuminate the interaction between the reader and printed materials (e.g. books, Bibles, periodicals, newspapers, tracts, etc.) aimed at or produced and read by religious individuals and groups. Studies dealing with religion and class, regionalism, feminism, immigrant groups, racial and sexual minorities, radicals, etc. are especially welcome. The Center hopes that the conference will include scholars interested in Protestantism, Roman Catholicism, Eastern Orthodox, Mormonism, Judaism, Islam, and indigenous religions, as well as new or less-well-known movements. Studies of single group experiences and studies that compare the historical sociology of print in the lives of religious groups and individuals located at the periphery of power are of great interest to the Center. A more detailed call for papers is available at the Center's website along with details of the proposed publication.
