Vice as a moral/ethical term
Vice as a tool/instrument
Vice as second-in-line
Religious and philosophical implications
Images of decadence vs. indigence
Hedonism vs. Asceticism
How does Goddess Studies, or the study of women and/or female figures in religion and mythology, contribute to social justice?
In what ways can Goddess Studies aid in the examination of themes such as classism, eco-justice, womanism, racism, and/or colonialism? From philosophical, anthropological, archetypal, literary, mythological, hermeneutical, and/or religious studies perspectives, what do particular goddesses/figures in religion bring to the scholarly conversation of social justice?

Contemporary perspectives on Christianity's role in American Indian communities are diverse and often ambiguous, partly due to this religion's involvement in colonization. While some grassroots traditionalists and many in the activist and academic communities frequently reject Christianity for its role in dismantling American Indian traditions and identities, the past is complex, and the American Indian Christian community is strong and growing. The last two decades have seen its resurgence. Recent works such as Mona Susan Power's Sacred Wilderness Sterlin Harjo's This May Be the Last Time, and The Cherokee Hymnbook: New Edition for Everyone reflect ongoing practices of Christianity in Indian Country today.
The conference theme covers issues relating to gender with special emphasis on how language and culture defines, affects, influences, shapes and visualises gender in a wide spectrum ranging from the individual to the communal across an array of disciplines. Being ideologically, politically and socially constructed, language, culture and gender all intersect at some point. And it is this intersection that we wish to explore comparatively from varying perspectives. Concerned with the HOW and WHY's the aim of the conference is to analyse the content of gender within the very bones of language and culture.
