Borders, Boundaries, and Borderlands in Middle Eastern Christianity.

We are soliciting papers addressing the theme of borders, boundaries, and borderlands. Papers should consider contestations of space and religiosity related to the nation-state or other spaces variously conceived, including the creation or contestation of sacred space in diaspora settings and the use of religious art and music to mark communal boundaries. Priority will be given to papers addressing this theme from an anthropological perspective.
