Religion, Spirituality, and Inequality in Communities of Color: A Special issue of Women, Gender, and Families of Color
Call for Papers Date:
Recent public discourse on women’s reproductive rights and abortion, full-time homemakers and working mothers, and LGBTQ partnership and marriage, has highlighted the pervasive role and power of organized religion and spirituality in daily life, as well as related issues of oppression and resistance. For this special issue of Women, Gender, and Families of Color (WGFC), we seek historical, and social science manuscripts that explore the intersectionalities of race, class, gender, sexuality, and other socioeconomic categories in U.S. religious and spiritual settings. Topics may address, but are not limited to, the following:
Spheres of social inequality, such as race, class, gender, and sexuality and their reproduction and/or practice in U.S. religious/spiritual organizations or spaces;
The use of resources (e.g. human and financial) to impede or promote the reproduction of inequalities;
The meaning of relationships, and the practice of religion/spirituality, in these organizations and spaces for women, men, and LGBTQ communities;
The practice of social and/or economic privilege among groups in U.S. religious/spiritual organizations and spaces;
U.S. religious/spiritual structures as intransigent sites from which to challenge persisting inequalities;
U.S. transnational comparisons on any of the above.
Manuscripts should be a maximum of 30 pages, inclusive of title page, abstract (150 words or less), main body of text, figures, tables, and Chicago Style, 16th edition references. Only title pages should contain authors' names, affiliation, phone & FAX numbers, in addition to the email address of the corresponding author.
