Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: For 2013, we plan two sessions. One session will be co-sponsored with the program unit Archaeology of Religion in the Roman World. It will feature an open call for papers that will be organized around the theme of borders and borderlands: geographic, political, cultural, or cognitive boundaries where the lack of dominance by any one group creates both a need to interact and negotiate differences, and a space for the emergence of new and hybrid cultural forms and identities, not just at the center of power, but especially at its margins. The other session's topic is "Demonic Spaces." It will present invited papers that focus on interrelations between magic and space or theorize the spatiality of magical practice and belief.
