2022 Convention of the Modern Language Association: Washington, D.C.
CFP: Roundtable on Race, Religion, and Archives [3/22 extended deadline]
We invite topics that explore the relationships between race, religion, and archives for an approved session of the Religion and Literature Forum of the MLA. We welcome interdisciplinary work at the intersections of critical race theory, religious studies, cultural geography, health humanities, women and gender studies, and more. Proposals could include but are not limited to the following broad themes:
· Archival theory and praxis
· Politics of recovery
· Digital projects
· Reparative histories
· Problems of genre
· New archival research
· Potential and limitations of archives
· Silences and resistance
Presentations are expected to be brief. The exact time limit depends on the final number of panelists. The goal is to have plenty of time for robust discussion. Please send 250 abstract and cv to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 22.
