Gay Men and Religion Group and Men, Masculinities, and Religion Group and Religion, Sport, and Play Group

Call for Papers: 

We welcome proposals exploring the gym-built body as the masculine ideal for gay/hetero/bi men (for example, Internet subcultures that praise bodybuilders as “muscle gods”). What might this form of virtual/actual veneration say about gay/hetero/bi men and masculine ideals? How might we theorize approaches to the muscular male body? We welcome proposals that employ case studies whether historical or contemporary and/or draw on a range of disciplinary perspectives and diverse religious traditions. A successful proposal will include a thesis statement and a clear statement of both evidence and methodology.

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