July 13, 2009 | By |

What: Practical Matters,
Deadine for submissions: September 15, 2009

The online, multimedia academic journal Practical Matters invites multimedia submissions in the categories and genres of film, video, soundscape, new media, photography, art, and performance pieces (broadly construed) that engage the topics of ethnography, ethnography and theology, and anthropology of religion for an upcoming issue on the theme of Ethnography and Theology. This issue will explore the numerous intersections of ethnography, theology, and the study of religion. We are also interested in work that examines these themes in relation to pedagogy and religious practices.

The issue will explore questions such as (1) how do new approaches such as visual ethnography and web-based multimedia possess the potential to deepen and elevate the doing of ethnographies that investigate “religious” phenomena and theological questions? (2) can the questions and discourses of theology and religious studies enrich the doing and creating of ethnography across disciplinary boundaries? (3) what are the contributions of ethnographic fieldwork to the study of religion, ritual, and theology?(4) what emerges through the teaching of ethnographic tools to students of theology and religion?
