The Society for the Study of Religion Presents
Stories of the Body: Perspectives on Disability and Trauma in Religious Studies
Thursday, February 16
Fenwick Library Main Reading Room
This interdisciplinary panel explores the intersections of religion, disability, and trauma. Whether damned bodies in Hell, bodies that carry the weight of religious conflict, or issues of geopolitics and mental health, disability and trauma occupy important spaces in religious discourse. Join us for presentations from each panelist followed by discussion.
