CALL FOR PAPERS> Performing Devotion: Religious Rituals and Religious Practices, The Third Graduate Conference on Religion

by Frederick Ranallo-Higgins

The 2017 General Call for Papers
Performing Devotion: Religious Rituals and Religious Practices
The Third Graduate Conference on Religion
Thursday and Friday, May 11-12, 2017
University of California, Los Angeles
The UCLA Center for the Study of Religion announces its third annual graduate student conference on religion. This graduate conference aims to bring together students from various academic disciplines who work on topics in the study of religion. We welcome proposals from any academic discipline and theoretical or methodological approach.
One of the founders of performance studies in the United States, Richard Schechner, writes that “in religion, rituals give form to the sacred, communicate doctrine, open pathways to the supernatural, and mold individuals into communities.” Embodied performance has played important roles in world religions throughout history, and we wish to stimulate the productive and often surprising insights that its study yields. This year’s conference welcomes papers addressing any aspect of religious embodiment or enactment and encourages broad applications in defining concepts such as performance, ritual, practice, and religion. Submissions that compare societies from different regions of the world or different periods of history are especially encouraged.
Possible topics include but are not limited to:
-How do religious practices enact communications, devotions, and transformations?
-How might theories of performance inform studies of religious continuity and change, or the maintenance or re-creation of devotional practices over time and in varying places?
-In what ways has scholarship on secular performance genres contributed to understandings of religious practices, and vice versa?
-How are individual and group rituals related to each other?
-How do rituals mediate between religion and politics? Religion and gender? Religion and the arts? Religion and anything else?

The conference will consist of two days of thematically-organized panel sessions. Faculty will serve as respondents for each of the panels. Participants are afforded ample opportunity to receive constructive feedback on their research projects.

Thanks to the generous support of the UCLA Asia Institute, the 2017 conference is pleased to offer stipends of $500 to a limited number of presenters from Chinese universities (including Hong Kong and Taiwan). Special consideration will be given to students working on topics pertaining to ancient Chinese religions.

Guidelines for Submitting Proposals:
Please include the following in your paper proposals: 1) paper title, 2) email address, 3) institutional affiliation, 4) a 250-500-word abstract, and 5) a short one page curriculum vitae or a page on your research experience. Please send the proposal as a single PDF in the format “LastNameFirstName_Title” to UCLAreligionconference@gmail.com. Paper presentations should be a maximum of 20 minutes in length.

The deadline for proposal submission is January 16, 2017.  Notification of your proposal's acceptance status will be sent by February 13, 2017. In order to ensure that our faculty respondents have sufficient time to compose their responses, we require that all participants submit copies of their final papers three weeks prior (April 19, 2017) to the conference. In addition, we expect all presenters to participate in both days of the conference.

Conference Coordinators: Michael Chen, Silvio Curtis
Faculty Advisors: Carol Bakhos, Robert Gurval
