Religion in Latin America and the Caribbean Group

Statement of Purpose: 

This Group explores the richness and diversity of religious traditions in Latin America, the complex and often explosive relations between religion and politics in the region, the centrality of religion in Latin American culture since pre-Conquest times, and the global significance of religious events and lived religion in Latin America. We provide a forum for scholars to address religion in Latin America and the Caribbean with special attention to their larger sociopolitical and cultural contexts. Diverse disciplinary and methodological perspectives are highlighted in presentation of this scholarship.

Call for Papers: 

This year the Religion in Latin America and the Caribbean Group invites paper submissions and panel proposals on hemispheric approaches to the study of religion in the Americas. We are particularly interested in methodological issues that emerge from the relationship between theology and religious studies. We also invite proposals on the topic of Colonial Latin American religion and ritual. A third area of emphasis is the study of trans-national evangelizing movements throughout the Americas. RILAC also welcomes paper and panel proposals on any theme related to religion, culture, and society in Latin America, including among Latino/a in the US: an open call for papers.

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