Practical Matters - Call for Submissions
Practical Matters, a transdisciplinary multimedia journal of religious practices and practical theology, published by Emory University's Graduate Division of Religion is currently recruiting submissions addressing Islam, health and healing for an upcoming issue on Religion, Health and Healing. The deadline for  submissions is NOVEMBER 1, 2010.

We are interested in featuring work on a broad spectrum of questions, such as:
* What are the health and healing practices of various religious traditions and how have they been practiced?
* What definitions of health or healing are operating in these traditions and among their religious practitioners?
* What is the relationship between religious conceptions of health and healing and more public and societal views of health? What theological issues are raised by these relationships?
* How do religious convictions and practices affect health and healing in society and conversely, how do social views and practices regarding health affect religious attitudes, convictions, and practices?

Specifically, we are looking for submissions in these categories:
1. Submissions for Analyzing Matters on the theme of Religion, Health and Healing, submitted for peer review;
2. Submissions for Practicing and Teaching Matters on Religion, Health and Healing such as practitioner reflections, essays, pedagogical reflections, or field notes concerning religious practices, rituals, or other issues of concern for scholars, theologians, teachers and practitioners

Additional information on the submissions guidelines and current and past issues of Practical Matters can be found online at
