Ethics Section

Statement of Purpose: 

This is an established Section that has served scholars concerned in the field, others interested in the intersection of ethics, and other disciplines within the academy over an extended period of years. We believe it is inconceivable for any comprehensive study of religion to be undertaken without serious attention to the ethical teachings that are an integral part of every known religion. This Section seeks to serve the AAR by providing a forum for the ethical interests and issues all religious traditions address. We provide the opportunity for intellectual and academic exchange through the discipline of ethics. We encourage younger scholars and work to have a diversity of perspectives and methodologies represented from various religious traditions.

Call for Papers: 

The Ethics Section seeks proposals for individual papers and panels on the following topics: Civil Disobedience and Legal Violence; Human Trafficking; the Moral Monday Movement; the 50th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act; and the 20th Anniversary of Beyond Ontological Blackness: An Essay in African American Religious and Cultural Criticism (co-sponsored with the Black Theology Group). Other papers and panels relevant to the field of Religious and/or Social Ethics are welcomed.
