The American Academy of Religion is holding its 2013 meeting in Baltimore, Maryland, November 23-26. And the Korean Religions Group of the AAR invites you to submit proposals for panels or individual papers. Any proposal related to Korea and religion will be considered but particular attention will be given to proposals addressing the following themes:
Themes for the Standalone Session
Noteworthy figures in Korean religions from any religious tradition and from any period in Korea. Proposals may treat one or more figures and should speak to the figure(s)' significance for their local, Korean context and for the context that transcends Korea. Proposals that compare figures from different Korean religious traditions with respect to a particular theme keyed to the local/global dynamic are welcome. Figures of any race or ethnicity qualify so long as they are of import to Korea religions.
Religion's role in war and peace in Korea (e.g., religion's role in the Korean War and efforts to reunify the two Koreas)
Themes for the Cosponsored Session with the Christian Spirituality Group
Christian spirituality in Korea as well as in other parts of East Asia, manifested in the past or the present, and embodied, e.g., in beliefs, events, persons, practices, or experiences. We especially encourage proposals that discuss how Christian spirituality has been influenced by the religious and sociopolitical context of Korea/East Asia, whether through conscious or unconscious adaptation or through outright reaction against it. Proposals that compare Korean and other East Asian forms of Christian spirituality are also welcome.
Paper proposals for either of these sessions must be submitted through the PAPERS system on the AAR website. The deadline for proposal submission is March 1, 2013. Notification of acceptance or rejection of proposals will be made by April 1, 2013.
