For this year’s Anthropology, Psychology, and Religion section, we are especially interested in papers that address the conference theme of “‘All The Ends of the Earth:’ Challenge and Celebration of Global Catholicism.” Suggested areas of inquiry include:

●      Theological reflections on colonialism, post-colonialism, and de-colonialism, with special interest given to projects that engage Homi Bhabha’s work on hybridity, mimicry, and/or ambivalence.

●      Reflections on persons and communities inhabiting theological, spiritual, and ecclesial, as well as geographic “borderlands,” particularly as those borderlands are experienced by persons living within complex multi-cultural contexts. We are also interested in proposals that explicitly consider the literal and metaphorical disruption of borderlands, from segregation to border walls.  

●      How interfaith dialogue and religious pluralism (re)shapes the experience of religious identity and community.

●      Explorations of how varying cultural presumptions about psychology and subjectivity inform religious experience and identity.

We encourage the proposal of individual papers as well as multi-person panels.
