Geography of Religions and Belief Systems
Below are the calls for papers / panels for sessions of the Philadelphia AAG annual meeting sponsored by the Geography of Religions and Belief Systems (GORABS) Specialty Group.  Included in each are contact names and directions for submitting abstracts.  Please note that even after an organizer accepts your abstract for the session you must submit it again directly to the AAG then subsequently communicate your pin number to the organizer.  Note also that, though the AAG restricts each presenter to one poster or panel session, you are permitted to both present a paper / poster and participate on a panel.  However, if you are in a panel session you must also acquire a pin and submit it to the appropriate organizer.  Should you have any questions about this process or any of these sessions please do not hesitate to contact me.
Looking forward to a great meeting in Philly,
Calls For Papers:
1) "Approaching Geographies of Religions"
2) "Women, Religion, and Space"

"Approaching Geographies of Religions and Belief Systems"
Co-sponsored by the Cultural Geography Specialty Group and the Geography of
Religions and Belief Systems Specialty Group.

This session will include papers concerning various approaches to
studying the geography of religions and belief systems.  Questions could include:
What is meant by religions and belief systems?  What are their geographic
dimensions?  How do they relate to other fields of geographical research?
What kinds of ontological and epistemological frameworks should guide
geographic exploration of religions and belief systems? What benefits
and limitations are associated with various methodological approaches?
What are the stated (or hidden) agendas in the study of geographies of
religions and belief systems?

This session is being organized by Jim Proctor ( ) of the
University of California, Santa Barbara and Michael Ferber of West Virginia
University ( ).

Respondents interested in submitting a paper should send a short abstract
(250 words) to Michael at NO LATER THAN SEPTEMBER 30th,  2003.

2) "Women, Religion, and Space."
Co-sponsored by the Geographic Perspectives on Women Specialty Group and the
Geography of Religions and Beliefs Systems Specialty Group for the
of American Geographers 2004 Meeting in Philadelphia, March 14-19

Papers are invited on a wide variety of topics that address the spatial
aspects of women and religion.  Both theoretical and empirical papers are
welcome. Examples of geographic themes might be women as missionaries in
imperial settings, religious beliefs that define women's mobility, religious
women's spaces such as convents, or diaspora women's religious practices as
new immigrants.  Interested scholars who are unable to contribute a paper
are encouraged to participate as a session chair or discussant. 

This session is organized by Karen Morin at Bucknell University

presentation requirements may be found at the AAG's website at

session/s should be sent to Jeanne Kay Guelke at < >.

4) Geographies of Christian Identities
Call for papers for the annual meeting of the AAG, Philadelphia, PA,
March 14-19 2004

Please consider submitting an abstract for a paper presentation to be
included in the session:

'Thinking the geographies of Christian identities'

at the 100th annual meeting of the Association of American Geographers, to
be held in Philadelphia, PA, March 14th-19th 2004. The session welcomes
both established academics and postgraduate researchers. Discussion aims to
bind itself through two inter-related themes. On the one hand researchers
are invited to contribute to debate surrounding the 'thinking' of Christian
geographies; this is, the epistemology and ontology of 'Christian
geographies', or Christian perspectives in Geography. On the other hand the
session aims to open itself up more broadly to the production of Christian
geographies in more empirical ways; research may focus on the production of
sacred spaces, pilgrimages, geographies of tourism, environmentalism,
development, or the like. Research may also focus on Christian geographies
at a variety of scales, from local, and/or national and international.
Respondents interested in submitting a paper should send a short abstract
(100 words) to the organisers NO LATER THAN 25TH SEPTEMBER 2003. This
abstract should also include 'keywords', no less than 3 and no more than 6.
If you are interested in contributing then please submit abstracts to either:

Department of Geography
Queen Mary College (University of Lodon)
Mile End Road
Mile End
E1 4NS


McGlothlin-Street Hall 238
Department of Geography

P.O. Box 947,

5) Geographies of Muslim Identities (PANEL)


Given the recent interest in Muslim identities in all areas of social
science research, this panel session hopes to bring together both
established academics and postgraduate researchers interested in the
geographies of Muslim identities. Research may focus on any aspect of
Muslim identities from a variety of international, national and/or local
perspectives. Panel participants may be interested in how the geographies
of Muslim identities intersect with gender, race, ethnicity, class,
sexuality and so on (although these points are by no means exhaustive).
If you would be interested in participating in this panel please send a
short abstract (100 words) to the organisers by 19th September 2003.
