I am seeking fellow presenters for a panel on religion and material
culture in America for ASA 2006 conference in Oakland, California.
Since the work of ASA strives to be interdisciplinary, I seek panel
participants from many disciplines
including (but not limited to) history, religious studies, American
studies, sociology, etc.
The purpose this panel is two-fold to explore the role of material
culture in lives of religious Americans as well as to show how the
study of religious things inserts people and practices that might be
overlooked in narratives of American culture, past and present. I
encourage a diversity of papers on religious things, which could range
from architecture to art to clothing to books to other sacred objects.
If you are interested, please send me a proposal, no more than 500
words, as well as an abbreviated CV to firstname.lastname@example.org by December
21st, 2005. Please contact me off-list.
