CFP: Political theology in Islam

2010 Regional Meeting of the Southeastern Commission for the Study of Religion (SECSOR) at the Century City Marriott Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, 5-7 March 2010

The SECSOR section or program unit "Islam" has been allocated five panels at this conference. Proposals on all topics in Islamic Studies will be considered, but proposals on political theology are especially invited (along with such on social and economic justice; teaching Islam; scripture, religion, and science; and Islam in the West).

Members who wish to present a paper or coordinate a session are invited to submit proposals (1-2 pages) or complete manuscripts to the section chairs, Rachel Scott (Virginia Tech): rmscott@vt.edu
and Dave Damrel (University of Southern Carolina, Upstate): ddamrel@uscupstate.edu

Deadline: 1 October 2009

Please use the proposal submission form available on the SECSOR website:


Each member is limited to one proposal. (Check with SECSOR whether proposals by non-members are admissible.)

Please note that papers must be of such a length as can be presented and discussed within 45 minutes. Planned use of audio-visual equipment must be noted on the submission form. Due to the very high cost of renting audio-visual equipment, presenters who wish to use such equipment must provide it themselves. SECSOR will provide a limited number of designated AV rooms with a screen, cart, and cords; however, presenters must bring their own projection, audio, and other AV equipment. It is still necessary for program planners to know which presenters are planning on using AV equipment, though, so they can be scheduled in the appropriate rooms (see proposal form). The copying of handouts is also the responsibility of the presenter.

All program participants must be pre-registered for the meeting.
