ATLA Seeks Papers for “Women in Religion”

February 23, 2021

The Parliament of the World’s Religions is a proud partner of the 1000 Women in Religion Wikipedia Project. In the last two years our partners in this project, the Women’s Caucus: Religious Studies at the American Academy of Religion (AAR) and the Society for Biblical Leadership (SBL), have been working through the 1000 Women in Religion Wikipedia Project to get more secondary sources written about women important to the world’s religious and wisdom traditions.  Their first volume of biographies about women has been published with Atla Open Press entitled, Claiming Notability for Women Activists in Religion.

The Women’s Caucus is currently working on editing the second volume on women academics who study religious and wisdom traditions.  And the call for papers is out for their third volume on women associated with the Parliament of the World’s Religions. There are two calls associated with this volume. One is a call for panel papers for their women’s biographies panel at the American Academy of Religion/Society of Biblical Literature meeting. The second is the call for papers for the published volume with Atla.

Atla (formerly the American Theological Library Association) is seeking papers for Volume 3 in the series Women in Religion entitled Uncovering women’s stories from the Parliament of the World’s Religions. The deadline for this call is March 12.
