In light of the AAR presidential theme of “Religion, Poverty and Inequality: Contemplating Our Collective Futures,” we invite proposals that discuss ways faculty have incorporated class and power analysis into religious studies courses. How do we assist students to do critical analysis of our economic and political structures and systems and how do we impassion them to envision and promote transformative social change that addresses poverty and inequality? We are especially interested in proposals that understand class as a power structure not only as unequal income/wealth distribution, as well as proposals that foreground working-class employees and communities.
