This session seeks submissions that examine the relationships and intersections of rhetoric and religion. Topics include, but are not limited to: investigating the rhetorical elements of homiletics; theology and logology; historical analysis of religious rhetoric development; methodology; religion, rhetoric and space; intersections of race, class and gender; language and practice; and controversies within the field. We are particularly interested in proposals that skirt or problematize traditional interpretations of religious oratory rhetoric. By May 1, 2010, please send an abstract of no longer than one page to Amanda Mills, Georgia State University, amills8@student.gsu.edu.
