If you are attending the American Academy of Religion (AAR), here is another event you can attend.

A18-100
Sex, Gender, Sexuality, and Religion Cluster
Theme: Naming Our History, Rebuilding Our Alliances, Mapping Our Future

Jacqueline Hidalgo, Williams College, Presiding
Sunday – 9:00 AM-11:30 AM

Many AAR members are becoming increasingly frustrated with the fragmentation within the AAR and the self-fragmentation that results when different aspects of our identities are housed in different program units. Yet there are good reasons for the existence of the many gender-and-sexuality-related program units in terms of scholarly developments, access to the table, and generational differences. Panelists will look at the history of the development of the different units, including the ways that older units failed to meet new needs, but also acknowledge a shared history and try to imagine how the future could be less fragmented. The purpose of these sessions is to venture forth and see what we can do together.

Panelists:
Bjorn Krondorfer, Men, Masculinities and Religions Group; St. Mary’s College, Maryland

R. Marie Griffith, Religion and Sexuality Group; Washington University, St. Louis

Stephanie Mitchem, Womanist Issues in Religion and Society Group; University of South Carolina

Jay Emerson Johnson, Gay Men and Religion Group; Pacific School of Religion
