Space and Prayer in Motion

Density, diversity, and movement characterize urban space. We seek papers about the city as a setting for spirituality, and especially about the way those who pray make use of urban environments. How do city spaces set prayer in motion or bring prayer into public view? We also welcome papers addressing how race, gender, class, accessibility, and religious difference shape the dynamics of urban mobility in such situations. Possible topics might include prayer walking, prayer in schools, public religious activities, the role technologies of movement play in these activities, and public spaces such as roads and plazas used for prayer.
