Religion and Migration Group

Statement of Purpose: 

This Group is a forum in which scholars working on religion and migration from multiple perspectives can interact across methodologies, religious traditions, and regions. We solicit papers addressing the religious practices, experiences, needs, and beliefs of migrating peoples who adapt to new environments and impact their societies of origin and destination. We understand religion and migration broadly, from the religious communities of rural migrants in regional cities to the new understandings of religion that second-generation children construct in order to make sense of their identities or ethical responses of receiving communities. If you are interested in subscribing to our listserv, please contact Alison R. Marshall, Brandon University,

Call for Papers: 

The Religion and Migration Group seeks proposals exploring:

The effect of migration on the dynamics of religious diversity in Europe. This includes, but is not limited to, such themes as the Syrian refugee crisis; the role of religion in forced migration; the permeability of European borders; the work of churches, mosques, and other religious organizations in settling refugees; the intersection of gender and religion in the settling of refugees; and the (in)visibility of Islam in Europe. This is a co-sponsored session with the Religion in Europe Group.

As well we are very interested in panel submissions on the impact of migration on religious beliefs and practices, as well as politico-social experiences of religion in home and/or host countries. Panels will be in a roundtable format, with the viewing of films up to 1.5 hours, followed by a discussion by expert panelists (some of whom may have been involved in the production of the film) and the audience. Please note that the AAR is unable to pay fees related to the showing of films in an educational setting.

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