Call for papers to international, interdisciplinary conference on gender and religion taking place at the University of Copenhagen Oct. 27-28, 2006.
How has gender been used and misused in religious revivals? How do ideas about religion, gender, and equality influence power relations locally and around the globe? What are the implications of understanding gender and religion as constructed and as sites for conceptual and practical conflicts about meaning? How and where have gender and sexuality constituted sites for negotiations and conflicts within or between religious communities and commitments?
The conference aims at bridging gender and religious studies and at reflection of both current and historical perspectives. It seeks to enhance interdisciplinary exchange and to create a space for exchange across research specialisations. Every scholar interested in framing his or her contribution in relation to the themes of the conference is invited to submit a paper or to suggest a workshop.
Coordination for Gender Studies, University of Copenhagen, Ø. Farimagsgade 5 A, Postbox 2099, 1014 Copenhagen K, Denmark
