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
