The ISR section seeks panel, poster, and/or paper proposals on any interdisciplinary topic related to the study of religions — submitted as a 150-200 word abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 15 March 2018. A reply regarding acceptance will be returned by 22 March 2018 to allow those that may not be included in the section to re-propose to the AIS conference at-large (not within the section) by the deadline of 1 April 2018. Accepted proposals for the section will be submitted together to conference organizers by 1 April 2018.
Special interest is given to studies that discuss/employ/integrate two or more disciplines from across natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, arts, and/or professions. In particular the ISR section of AIS seeks:
-topics that address religions or related phenomena in relation to this year’s conference theme of “Inter/diversities: Intersecting Race, Gender, Class, Abilities, Theories and Disciplines”
-problem- or case-based work on religions or religious phenomena that explicitly employs/integrates two or more disciplines;
-interdisciplinary methods, concepts, or media as applied to scholarship/research on religions or religious phenomena; and/or
-work explicitly engaging consilience and divergence in the study of religions, including mutual consilience and/or divergence between sciences and humanities/arts
-interdisciplinary study of religions and phenomenology
-interdisciplinary study of religions in conversation with immigration and pluralism
