Call for Papers: Inaugural Conference on ‘Damaged Bodies: Gendered Identity
in Religious Discourse’
May 7th-9th 2001, School of Oriental & African Studies, University of London

Convenors: Dr Julia Leslie, Centre Director and Sîan Hawthorne, Research
Assistant
Keynote Speaker: Professor Wendy Doniger, University of Chicago

The Gender & Religions Research (GRR) Centre at the School of Oriental &
African Studies, University of London is pleased to announce the first
annual conference in Gender & Religions Research on the theme ‘Damaged
Bodies: Gendered Identity in Religious Discourse’.

We will consider how gender and sexuality are rendered ‘visible’ or
‘invisible’ through the representation of the body in the religious
traditions of the world and to what extent the ‘damaged body’ illuminates
and establishes normative presentations of gender identity. We will ask what
ways gender influences responses to, and visions of, the body. How does it
affect issues of reading and representation for the scholar and the
practitioner? Is the gaze in religious imagery and text gendered? In what
ways are gender and sexuality displayed on or through damaged bodies? An
edited volume of selected papers from the conference will be produced which
will offer a valuable contribution to the growing body of work in the area
of gender and the study of religions.

Papers related to the conference theme are invited on any of the following
topics:

·writing the body and gynocritics: transformative strategies in religious
practice;
·the body and reproduction;
·the study of religions researcher as gendered subject;
·challenging androcentrism in religious discourse;
·intersections between gender, sexuality, religion and the body;
·religious space: gender, architecture and religion;
·the body in ritual performance;
·the private and public body;
·bodies of knowledge/bodies of belief;
·concepts of the body in the philosophy of religion;
·damaging bodies: is religion good for women?;
·religion and healing.

Please send 100-300 word abstracts to Sîan Hawthorne at the address below or
