The new Research Network, Misogynoir to Mishpat, will publish a noteworthy online series entitled ‘Conversations in Race, Gender and Religion’. Though there is worldwide attention focused on racial reckoning, those conversations continue to ignore the multi-sectional issues of race, gender and class are largely overlooked. We welcome contributions that engage contemporary, or historical events, that interrogate methodological and theoretical insights, while chronicling the intersectionality of race, gender, class and religion. We are seeking original contributions on themes which include but are not limited to:
- How do women exhibit prophetic rage and protest for social justice?
- What are methods of intersectionality which can bring activists into conversation with multiple faith traditions and academics to achieve social parity?
- What are some healthcare issues for women of African descent including, but not limited to, reproductive rights and high maternal mortality rates for women of African descent, domestic abuse and other forms of violence;
- How does the politics of COVID-19 and its corollary to necropolitics translate into structural inequity for communities of African descent;
- Theodical expressions (why do Black women suffer disproportionately in most social metrics) and ecclesial analysis (the role of traditional and contemporary faith expressions in furthering Black women’s roles today);
By providing a prolific opportunity to engage structural inequity, we will analyze issues of race/ethnicity, gender, and religion for women of African descent. We welcome contributions to the new series. Please email Prof Nash at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following:
- short proposal for the piece (no more than 150 words) or full paper of 500-1,000 words
- proposed title
- short author bio (no more than 50 words)
This is our inaugural year for the blog with our anticipated launch for the blog set for October 2021. Contributions are accepted on a rolling basis. We will endeavor to respond to contributions within 14 days of receipt. Please ensure all requested items are received. Editors will set both the draft and final publication deadlines for this new series.
We look forward to hearing from you!
