CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Ken Albala and Trudy Eden are seeking proposals for a new collection of essays entitled _Food and Faith: Consumption in the Christian Tradition, 1500 to the Present_. This volume will explore how traditional or innovative dietary practices or food habits have expressed the Christian faith. We would like the chapters in this volume to cover but not necessarily be limited to the ways Christian adherents have
---sought to define their faith with their food prohibitions or culinary traditions,
---bound themselves together as adherents by using food symbolically or functionally,
---used food as an outward expression of their inward religiosity, or
---used food to facilitate the Christian faith in themselves or others on philosophical, social, bodily and/or psychological levels.
We invite submissions from various disciplinary, interdisciplinary, and comparative perspectives, focusing on individuals, single sects, or groups. If you are interested in contributing to this volume, please send your c.v and a 250-500 word abstract of your proposed chapter including your theoretical framework and your primary sources to Trudy.Eden@uni.edu and Kalbala@pacific.edu by April 1, 2008. If you know of others who might be interested in contributing to this volume, by all means, please pass this call on.
