Call for proposals for chapters in an edited collection with the working title Religion and Domestic Design
This collection aims to re-orient the study of religion and the arts away from high art and towards the quotidian, as well as away from the gaze and towards physical interaction with the material. I’m particularly interested in chapters that attend to processes of making. At present, this is an open call, for chapters focussing on any religious tradition (including nonreligion) and historical period. Discussion of the ways that domestic design crosses over religious boundaries would be particularly welcome.
Please send initial expressions of interest (a working title and a few lines about the approach you intend to take) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 June 2019.
Timeline: Initial expressions of interest due 1 June 2019. Final abstracts to be agreed and the publication proposal submitted by August 2019. Completed chapters (6,000-8,000 words) will be due by June 2020.
UK contributors, please note: the timeline for this volume will not permit publication in this REF cycle, but it will be possible to negotiate extensions for people who need to prioritise REF outputs for the current cycle.
