go to CALL FOR PAPERS

 

Religion binds people into distinct groups and divides people into categories of "us" and "them" or "self" and "other."  We seek submissions that explore the topic of religion and difference from the ancient to the contemporary world. This conference will explore both halves of this self/other dichotomy: How are in-groups identified? What is the significance of difference within an in-group? How are out-groups identified? What is the effect of this identification on an individual or on a group? What happens when individuals and communities interact across the self-other divide? What are the texts, practices, and broader changes that this contact produces? And, crucially, does "the other" still work as an academic category? What do scholars do when they name "the other?"
