Are the Gods Afraid of Black Sexuality? Religion and the Burdens of Black Sexual Politics Conference October 23 & 24 2014

http://www.carss.columbia.edu/
Are the Gods Afraid of Black Sexuality? Religion and the Burdens of Black Sexual Politics – a two-day event that brings together scholars, activists and religious leaders to explore a range of historical and contemporary phenomena associated with religion and race, alongside gender and sexuality, as they coalesce and converge. The task before us is not to address a single problem, but rather to unearth and engage with the often-unstated normative claims -- surrounding race and religion, gender and sex -- that continue to inform the work of scholars of (and the lives of people within) the US and the African Diaspora. Building on the Institute’s longstanding commitment to wedding scholarship and activism, Are the Gods Afraid of Black Sexuality? also launches a new initiative within IRAAS. The Center on African-American Religion, Sexual Politics and Social Justice (CARSS) will extend our conference work through a forward-reaching commitment to research, education and public engagement.
