Call For Papers: Religion And Monsters Conference at Syracuse April 2013

“The Religion Graduate Organization at the Religion Department of Syracuse University seeks submissions for its graduate student conference:

The Monstrous, the Marginalized, and Transgressive Forms of “Humanity”, April 5th and 6th 2013

Monsters, angels, demons, vampires and cyborgs challenge conventional notions of
humanity. The lived experience of many humans also pushes against these norms. Through the investigation of trangressive being(s), this conference will explore what it means to be “human.”

We welcome panel and individual paper proposals on topics relating to the boundaries of humanness including, but not limited to discussions of Avatars, Angels, Demons, Cyborgs, Superheroes, Vampires, and Post-human Bodies. We also welcome papers which address Abilities/disabilities, Madness, Genius and Mental Illness, Animality, Hybridity, Race, Gender, Religion and Sexuality.

Please submit paper proposals of 350 words or less to Wendy DeBoer (wdeboer[@]syr[.]edu) by January 15th 2013. Please also include name, institutional affiliation and program of study with your proposal. Acceptances will be communicated by February 15th 2013.”
