Law, Religion, and Culture Group and Secularism and Secularity Group

Call for Papers: 

We invite proposals that explore the intersection of law, religion, and economy. This theme might be approached in one of the following ways, among others:
How has a distinction between religion and economy been invoked, instituted, or contested in law, and with what consequences? Recent critical literature on secularism and secularity has attended to how the boundary is drawn between the "religious" and the "political", and how that boundary is contested, for example, by attempts to "deprivatize" religion for the sake of political critique. Less attention has been given to the politics of boundary-drawing as they apply to the "economic." For instance, how do "private" and "public" become constructed as religious and secular in the discourse and practice of economic development? And how does law work to disrupt or reinforce these distinctions? How does secular politics effect a distinction between "religious" and "economic" domains, as, for example, in the case of charity law?
