The Communal Studies Association seeks papers for its Sept. 29 – Oct. 1, 2001 conference “Community on the Margins” at South Union Shaker Village in Kentucky. Papers from various disciplines on intentional communities or any aspect communal living, past or present, are welcome. Typical topics/subjects on intentional communities include: history, historical preservation, Museum studies, architecture, anthropology, religious studies, environmental sustainability, sociology, political science, and others connected to community living. By focusing on the margins, the conference theme refers to existence beyond the norms. Many communitarians have existed on the margins in both social and geographic contexts as subsets of the larger society. Theme-related papers and those of general interest related to communal studies or communal sites will be considered. For consideration, send the title and a 150 word abstract, along with a brief (100 word) biographical statement by April 8, 2011.
