Jackie Stone’s students and friends gather to honor her retirement from Princeton University.
This event, sponsored by the Lived Religion in the Digital Age project with support from the Henry Luce Foundation, will convene scholars of religion and theology across a variety of fields of expertise to engage in interdisciplinary conversation around critical (re)orientations in the study of religion, from visual media, law, and urbanization to environmental theology, migration, and racial justice. Inspired by geographer Yi-Fu Tuan's question, "When does mere location become place?," the symposium seeks to scrutinize formations of location and locatedness—geographic, sensorial, imaginative, architectural, legal, incarnational, cultural, virtual, affective, and otherwise—as generative frames in the study of religion and theology. We are excited to bring together a robust group of scholars whose scholarship both directly and indirectly contributes to this conversation.
I’ll be speaking after lunch on the Monday as part of a roundtable about religion and capitalism. (One of my fave topics!) Teaser: What do tidy closets, sugar addiction, and human rights have in common?
