The Association of Practical Theology’s additional annual meeting at AAR focuses on pedagogy in or through practical theology. With this lens, we invite proposals for papers or panels responding to the following questions: In your teaching, how does practical theology help you to address cross-culturalism or multiculturalism in interreligious worldviews, theological hybridity, or polydoxy? In attending to experiences of marginalization (e.g. sexism, racism, heterosexism, or interreligious contexts) in your teaching, how does practical theology help you to address the intersectionality or simultaneity of embodied differences or differences in religious practices?

The Association of Practical Theology values diversity in scholarship as an important factor in academic excellence. Toward that end, please include within your proposal a statement of no more than 100 words describing how your work may diversify or expand current scholarship in practical theology.

Proposals should be no more than 750 words. Proposals should be submitted electronically as double-spaced Word documents. The body of the proposal should not include information that would identify the author. Please include a separate document that provides identifying information about the author (i.e. name, institution, etc.) and the corresponding proposal title. Proposals will be selected by a blind peer review process. Please submit proposals by April 22, 2013 to: [email protected].
