Sexas a concept, identity, and practicehas been the target of sustained controversy in public and academic discussions involving religion, theology, politics, and society throughout history. The ways we think and communicate about sex and gender both reveal and inform our assumptions about humanity, relationships, intimacy, embodiment, virtue and vice, sin and salvation, evil, violence, identity formation, family formation, and the salutary organization of societies. The K o ino nia Fo rum G ra dua te Stude nt Co nfe re nc e , sponsored by Princeton Theological Seminary, is scheduled for March 7-8, 2013, with a keynote address by Mary-Jane Rubenstein, Associate Professor of Religion and core faculty in the Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Wesleyan University. The board of Koinonia Forum invites submissions of proposals for 20minute conference presentations from emerging scholars whose research pertains to any aspect of this theme. We warmly welcome and encourage submissions from students of all disciplines and faith traditions, from scholars in history, religion, theology, Christian ethics, moral theology, biblical studies, practical theology, sociology, philosophy, law, classics, and the sciences, regarding the following topics: church polity and politics LGBTQ studies/queer theory performativity history of sexuality and religion feminisms sex and sacred texts masculinities family media mysticism clergy erotics birth control marriage/celibacy pornography heteronormativity gender roles/identities sexual anthropology Ple a se subm it pro po sa ls o f 2 5 0 - 3 0 0 w o rds via e m a il by D e c e m be r 1 , 2 0 1 2 to c o urtne y.pa lm bush@ptse m .e du
