Women of Color Scholarship, Teaching, and Activism Group

Statement of Purpose:

This Group fosters intellectual exchange in the fields of religious studies and theology as they are developing in diverse communities of color from a gendered analysis. While the AAR features Program Units from diverse communities of color, we provide a space for conversation between communities of color. This Group does not assume a prior “women of color” identity, but centers a woman of color analytic that deconstructs the intersecting logics of gender and race. At the same time, we do not hold to a “post-identity” framework and are also concerned with the status of women of color in the academy, the politics of pedagogy, and the relationship between women-of-color-centered activism and scholarship. Understanding identity as performative and shifting, we make the very category of “women of color” itself a site for political and intellectual engagement.

Call for Papers: 

This Group welcomes proposals in any area related to women of color scholarship, teaching, and activism. We are particularly interested in proposals that focus on:

• Ecowomanist/ecofeminist scholarship, teaching, and activisms

• Relationship between violence against women and environmental concerns

• Environmental racism and women of color (politics of pollution)

• Children of color and urban/rural health

• Teaching environmental justice in churches and in the academy

• Cognitive imperialism and pedagogical strategies of resistance.




Proposals are anonymous to chairs and steering committee members until after final acceptance/rejection
