AAR Ethics Unit invites papers on chaplaincy

The Ethics unit of the American Academy of Religion invites papers for the 2019 Annual Meeting on the theme The Chaplain in the Public Sphere:

“We invite papers that examine the diverse engagement of chaplains in the public sphere. This includes papers addressing the rise of “movement chaplains” serving on the front lines of social movements such as Occupy, Black Lives Matter, Standing Rock and counter-protests to white supremacy; the role of chaplains in serving those unaffiliated with traditional denominations; and the relationship of chaplaincy to advocacy and politics; and new challenges facing chaplains in traditional spaces such as hospitals, prisons and colleges campuses.”
