This conference aims to foster a discussion of ways in which desire operates within religious contexts, with specific emphasis on the ways in which individuals mediate their various desires within religious realms. In addition to discussions of desire and sexuality, we aim to broaden the conversation about religion and desire to other bodily wants and esoteric needs and cravings.
We seek diverse theoretical frameworks and interdisciplinary approaches, studies of particular communities from around the world or comparative studies, perspectives on historical and contemporary subjects, and presentations utilizing multimedia. Presentations will be a maximum of 20 minutes long.
Please submit proposals as .docx attachments to email@example.com by December 1, 2012. Proposals must include the presenterís name, departmental and institutional affiliation; paper title; a 250-300 word abstract; a description of audio/visual needs; and a 1-2 page CV. Panel proposals are welcome; please include a 250-300 word panel description in addition to requested information for each presenter. Notification will be sent in early January and final paper drafts will be due in early February.
