Orthodox Christianity, Alterity, and Worldmaking

Until the last decade, Orthodox Christianity has been viewed through the lens of alterity in the social sciences. Thus, we are still reckoning with the lack of scholarship on how Orthodox life worlds are created, (inter)connected, sustained, and remapped, between local and global contexts. Orthodox Christian lifeworlds, from homelands to diasporas, are enmeshed in broader discussions on the role of religion in 21st century public life. This panel seeks to examine the material, social, and political nature of the faith as it relates to transnational alliances, geopolitical predicaments, power dynamics (whether they be national, institutional, and/or imperial), as well as everyday lived experiences that commingle with these larger scales. We seek proposals from those interested in exploring the intersections of Orthodox Christianity and race; tradition, gender and sexuality, and morality; global conservatism, fundamentalism, and right-wing politics; the social and political life of Orthodox theology; empire-building, colonial legacies, and imperialism; among others. We are particularly interested in papers that disrupt the traditional narratives of Orthodox practices, believers, and institutions.
