While American studies scholar-teachers have long engaged students in critical discussions about race, ethnicity, and gender and are increasingly effective in their teaching about sexuality, many hesitate to teach about religion, despite the strong historical importance of religion in American culture and society and the
personal importance of religion to many students. In an effort to explain why and support those American studies scholar-teachers who want to engage this important topic, participants are sought for a workshop on teaching religion in the American studies classroom—why or how they do it, why they don’t, how they struggle and succeed with it—for the 2011 American Studies Association Annual Meeting, to be held in Baltimore, MD, October 20-23. Potential participants should send a 250 word abstract of their presentation, including a title; a one-page CV; and details about needed audio-visual support to email@example.com by January 20, 2011.
