The Space, Place, and Religious Meaning Consultation of the American Academy Religion invites proposals for individual papers or panels for presentation at the Academy's annual meeting to be held in Chicago, November 1-3, 2008. The consultation seeks paper proposals from scholars of diverse traditions, religions, and time periods, who explore the function of religious space and/or place as a constitutive component of religious systems. We seek papers that employ theoretically or methodologically innovative approaches to understanding the relationships between space and religious meaning. We are particularly interested in papers that deal with the materiality of religious space and built environments or with the physical experience of such. We encourage submissions that take a comparative approach across traditions or time periods, or that can be paired with other submissions to suggest enlightening comparisons or disjunctures in content, method, or theory.
