Proposals are sought for a session at AWP 2020 where speakers and audience will consider the forms of creative nonfiction and scholarly/academic essays, and to envision the affordances made possible by their overlapping, intersection, and hybridization. It will bring together academics and editors who are exploring the possibilities and practicing the craft of literary scholarship and criticism opened up by creative nonfiction—scholarly writing within and transformed by the critical/creative hybrid space.

Why are space and place important categories for the study of religion? What role do these categories have in formulating concepts of religion? Scholars have attempted to not only theorize space but also to employ it in their work to better understand how humans interact with the spaces around them. These spaces are not confined to physical spaces. We invite papers that address, ask, and employ any discussion regarding space or place concering religion. Scholarly work is not restricted to one single field, and neither is this conference! We welcome proposals from all fields of interest and relevant disciples.
Living and travel expenses are covered by the department.
