AAR CFP on secularism, secularity and gender/race

The AAR group on secularism and secularity has published a CFP seeking proposals on “the secular’s complicated relationship with race and sex/gender. What new spaces has the secular opened up for women and people of color, and what new barriers has it created? What forms of activism does the secular enable that are not available in spaces governed by religious norms, and what forms does it foreclose? How does the divide between secular and religious map onto different kinds of feminism and struggles for rights and recognition? In turn, how do critical analyses of race and sex/gender disrupt that divide?
And why are self-avowed nonbelievers disproportionately white and male? We invite paper and session proposals that engage these and related questions through original historical or social scientific research.”

More information is available online.

I can’t help wondering if perhaps a group of REA scholars might have something useful to share on this!
