Practical Matters call for Multimedia Submissions on the topics of Ethnography and Theology, Anthropology and Religion
Call for Papers Date:
Practical Matters invites multimedia submissions in the categories and genres of film, video, soundscape, new media, photography, art, and performance pieces (broadly construed) that engage the topics of ethnography, ethnography and theology, anthropology and religion, and anthropology of religion for an upcoming issue on the theme of Ethnography and Theology. This issue will explore the numerous intersections of ethnography, theology, and the study of religion.We are also interested in work that examines these themes in relation to pedagogy and religious practices.
The issue will explore questions such as the following:
• How do new approaches such as visual ethnography and web-based multimedia possess the potential to deepen and elevate the doing of ethnographies that investigate “religious” phenomena and theological questions?
• Can the questions and discourses of theology and religious studies enrich the doing and creating of ethnography across disciplinary boundaries?
• What are the contributions of ethnographic fieldwork to the study of religion, ritual, and theology?
• What emerges through the teaching of ethnographic tools to students of theology and religion?
We encourage those considering submission to think broadly, creatively, and experimentally about form and content. Submissions in any form may be eligible for peer review; however, the peer review process is not mandatory for all submissions.
Published by the Emory University Graduate Division of Religion with support from the Initiative in Religious Practices and Practical Theology (a project of Lilly Endowment, Inc.), Practical Matters asks and provokes a vast array of questions about the study of religious practices and the field of practical theology in a variety of religious traditions and from a variety of disciplinary perspectives and methodological approaches.
