Encountering the Unexpected: Glitches, (Dis)placements, and Marginalia
We invite all interested graduate students to participate in the Syracuse University Department of Religion Graduate Student Conference, Encountering the Unexpected: Glitches, (Dis)placements, and Marginalia scheduled to take place on March 25th and 26th, 2016 in the Hall of Languages at Syracuse University.
Our Keynote Speaker is Prof. Pamela Klassen, of the Department for the Study of Religion, cross-appointed to the Department of Anthropology at the University of Toronto. She is the author of numerous publications most recently: Spirits of Protestantism: Medicine, Healing, and Liberal Christianity, which won the 2012 American Academy of Religion Award of Excellence in Analytical-Descriptive Studies. Her research interests include anthropology; Religion, healing, and medicine; Religious diversity in North America in historical and contemporary perspectives; Women, gender, and religion; Ritual and ritual theory; Narrative and life writing; Religion and the secular.
The conference is interdisciplinary, and we welcome any interested graduate students, but it might be of particular interest to students working in women and gender studies, new media studies, image theory, English and textual studies, critical theory, and other related areas.
