CfP: Sites and Processes of Ethical Learning – Religion and Self-Making in Asia

May 5, 2021

Projects of ethical self-making taking place in relation to religious traditions both represent and come to constitute specific forms of subjectivity and personhood. These projects, while often personal and with consequences for the individual, typically take place in specific sites and involve larger groups, networks, or communities of practice.

In this conference, we broaden the focus from individuals to consider sites where ethics and education (broadly conceived) coincide. A focus on learning in relation to ethics has the potential to deepen insights gained by focusing on individuals and ethical subjectivity by paying attention to the traditions and communities which sustain, inspire, and teach them. By inviting scholars who theorize processes of ethical learning in both traditional and non-traditional settings, including schools, places of worship, businesses, and the public sphere, we seek to generate broader, multi-disciplinary perspectives on the relationship between ethics, subjectivity, and education.
