“GENERATIONS: Exploring Race, Sexuality, and Labor across Time and Space”

June 9-12, 2011, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
Proposals due March 1, 2010

Subcommittee Religion: belief, practice, communities, co-chairs Marion Katz ( and Anthea Butler (

The 2011 conference will include workshops dedicated to discussing precirculated papers on questions and problems (epistemological, methodological, substantive) provoked by the notion of "Generations." To encourage transnational discussions, panels will be principally organized along thematic rather than national lines and therefore proposals will be vetted by a transnational group of scholars with expertise in a particular thematic, rather than geographic, field.

Further information (including other subcommittees) and instructions for submission are available on the Berkshire Conference website ( Preference will be given to discussions of any topic across national boundaries and to work that addresses sexuality, race, and labor in any context, with special consideration for pre-modern (ancient, medieval, early modern) periods. However, unattached papers and proposals that fall within a single nation/region will also be given full consideration. Proposals must be submitted electronically via the Berkshire Conference website:
