At the Intersection of Queer Studies & Religion

A transnational conversation

Barnard Hall

As part of a broader research project, “Interdisciplinary Innovations in the Study of Religion and Gender: Postcolonial, Post-Secular and Queer Perspectives,” hosted by Utrecht University, the Barnard Center for Research on Women and the Barnard department of religion present a discussion on the intersections of queer and religious studies. How has queer studies in religion shaped the field more generally? What epistemological contributions does a queer approach facilitate? What are the social and political implications of working at the intersections of these two fields? A selection of workshop papers following this public event will be published in a special issue of the journal Religion and Gender.
