Call for Commentors/Moderators

The Religion and American Culture Caucus was highly successful in increasing the number of panels on religion at the Annual Meeting of ASA in 2011, and we hope to repeat the experience in 2012. To that end, the Caucus has organized several panels for submission to the ASA program committee, but some of them are still in need of moderators/commentators. As a moderator/commentator, you would provide brief introductory comments for the panel, manage time, provide comments on each presentation as well as comments that unite the presentations, and manage Q and A.  Moderators/commentators can appear on the ASA program only once, so please do not volunteer for this position if you already have a commitment to the ASA program.

Moderators/commentators are needed for panels on the following topics:
Animals and spirituality
American atheism
Catholicism, violence, and nationalism
Celebrity and religion
Liberation theology
Missionaries and empire
Religion and empire in the New World
Religion and Empire in Asia
Mormonism and race
Mormonism and violence
Presidential religion
Religion in early America
Slavery and abolition
Religion and tourism
Religion and war

If you can volunteer to moderate/comment upon one of these panels, please contact Rebecca Barrett-Fox promptly at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).  As a reminder, panels cannot be submitted without moderators/commentators, so your generosity here might be the difference between a panel being submitted or not.

These are just some of the great topics that panelists are proposing.  This year’s Annual Meeting promises to be a great one for scholars of religion. Thanks for your help in making that happen!

Religion at ASA 2011: A Conversation

Over at the Religion in American History blog (http://usreligion.blogspot.com), Mike Altman (Emory) and I discuss the place of religion at this year’s ASA annual meeting. This year, there were 26 panels in the religion category, which was a great turn out.

Mike and I explore themes that connected panels including, science, the body, race, and the secular. We also make a good pitch about why more religious studies scholars should be attending ASA.
