As part of a broader research project, “Interdisciplinary Innovations in the Study of Religion and Gender: Postcolonial, Post-Secular and Queer Perspectives,” hosted by Utrecht University, the Barnard Center for Research on Women and the Barnard Department of Religion present a discussion on the intersections of queer and religious studies. How has queer studies in religion shaped the field more generally? What epistemological contributions does a queer approach facilitate? What are the social and political implications of working at the intersections of these two fields? A selection of workshop papers following this public event will be published in a special issue of the journal Religion and Gender.

Roundtable participants include:

  • Kent Brintnall, University of North Carolina
  • Patrick Cheng, Episcopal Divinity School
  • Amanullah De Sondy, University of Miami
  • Ju Hui Judy Han, University of Toronto
  • Sarra Lev, Reconstructionist Rabbinical College
  • Erin Runions, Pomona College
  • Max Strassfeld, University of Michigan
  • Heather White, New College of Florida
  • Melissa Wilcox, Whitman College
