CFP - Intersecting Discourses: Health, Religion, and Spirituality

CASCA Call for Papers - Intersecting Discourses: Health, Religion, and

Religious philosophies often play a significant role in social
constructions of the body and health, which in turn have political,
economic, and policy implications. Indeed, the global connection of
different health perspectives and authorities has emerged
concomitantly to, and often as a result of, religious and spiritual
philosophies. As such, interfaces of religion, spirituality, and
health are deeply intriguing social phenomena, the study of which
provides important insights for conceptualizing how both health and
religion are created, negotiated, and reproduced at different social
scales. We welcome papers that address the interface of health,
spirituality, and religion.
