Call for Papers
Material Religion: Embodiment, Materiality, TechnologyAn interdisciplinary conference
September 11-12, 2015
With support from the Henry Luce Foundation and the Duke University Department of Religious Studies
In 2005, the journal Material Religion began publication. Currently in its tenth year of production, the journal has become an international clearinghouse for research on the material cultures of religions throughout time and around the world as well as a forum for critical discussion and reviews of exhibitions and books related to the study of objects, materiality, images, and the host of practices that give religions their material presence.
Those interested are encouraged to submit proposals for papers addressing any aspect of the three intersecting themes: embodiment, materiality, and technology. The editors of the journal invite submissions in any domain of the investigation of religious material culture from any period of human history.
Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words and a brief vita (one or two pages) no later than March 15, 2015, to Professor David Morgan, Duke University, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those whose papers are accepted will need to provide their own travel costs, but food and hotel will be covered for speakers by the conference organizers.
Admission is open to the public and there is no fee for attending the conference.
