As part of a broader research project, “Interdisciplinary Innovations in the Study of Religion and Gender: Postcolonial, Post-Secular and Queer Perspectives” (hosted by Utrecht University), the Barnard Center for Research on Women, the Barnard Department of Religion, and the Columbia Center for the Study of Religion and Sexuality present a discussion on the intersections of queer and religious studies. How has queer studies in religion shaped the field more generally? What epistemological contributions does a queer approach facilitate? What are the social and political implications of working at the intersections of these two fields? Roundtable participants include: Kent Brintnall, Patrick Cheng, Ju Hui Judy Han, Sarra Lev, Erin Runions, Max Strassfeld, Heather White, and Melissa Wilcox. Moderated by Janet Jakobsen.

This conversation was recorded on November 20, 2013 at Barnard College in New York City. A selection of workshop papers following this public event will be published in a special issue of the journal Religion and Gender. More information is available at projectreligionandgender.org
