2018 CALL FOR PAPERS
The Society for the Arts in Religious and Theological Studies, a community of inquiry devoted to the development of the arts in religion and society, seeks presentations by scholars, teachers, pastors, or artists that explore creative/artistic engagements with and/or responses to the reality of immigration in the United States. Topics include but are not limited to the perspectives of the various groups of people on the move, crossing and policing borders, religious landscapes of immigration, immigration and the imagination, place making, political advocacy, and activism. All forms of artistic expression are welcome. SARTS membership is not required to submit a proposal, but will be required for those whose proposals are accepted. Abstracts of no more than 300 words are due by 4:00 p.m. on May 15, 2018. Selected papers will be read at the SARTS annual meeting in Denver (in conjunction with AAR/SBL).
