Call for Papers : Special Issue on Religious Education and Racism
The January-February 2017 issue of Religious Education seeks papers for a special issue critically exploring religious education in relation to race, racism, and anti-racism. What is the role of religious education in addressing racism today? Around the globe racism’s presence and effects manifest themselves in situations as varied as acts of racially motivated violence in the US; the global migration- and refugee- crisis; resurgence of anti-Semitic groups; policies of mass incarceration; and colonialism’s racially organized conflicts in places such as Indonesia, South Africa, and the Philippines. When has religious education encouraged or supported racism? How can it participate in creating change? Where is religious education significant in anti-racism movements and curricula? How might diverse religious traditions address and educate differently around matters of race through the lens of their particular religious identity and history?
For this issue we seek papers that attend not only to race/racism as an interpersonal phenomenon, but also to religious education in relation to structural, systemic elements of racism, and to intersectionality. We also welcome papers addressing religious education and constructions of race/racism in contexts outside of the U.S., recognizing the varied conceptualizations of race and racism in different parts of the world.

The twelfth IAPT biennial conference, the second one in South Africa, will be held from 16-20 July 2015 in Pretoria.
In view of the rich political and cultural heritage of South Africa and the historical and contemporary legacy of injustice that has so powerfully shaped this context, we decided at the Toronto conference to focus on issues of injustice, personhood and human dignity. It also provides an opportunity to explore philosophies and worldviews rooted in the (South) African context that could help to address these problems. In this conference we will explore one such worldview or spirituality that is deeply rooted in the Southern African context, namely Ubuntu.
The call for papers provide members with information on the venue, theme and plenary speakers.
