Feeling Images

We invite proposals exploring the affective dimensions of visual imagery and the ways in which a more robust accounting of visuality as an emotionally laden form of (ap)perception might deepen religious studies scholars' understanding of contemporary religious belief and practice. Both theoretical and empirical projects will be considered, but extra consideration will be given to proposals that focus on the neuro-biological underpinnings of affect/emotion and its implications for inter-religious engagement and navigating differences in an increasingly polarized world.
