Second biennial conference on religion and the state
Roger Williams University is named after the founder of the colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, the first established with guarantees of separation of church and state. We seek papers for our second biennial conference on religion and the state, to be held at the university April 24-26, 2009. Our theme this year is “Religion and the State in Islam and the West,” a theme intended to include points of contact, cooperation, and conflict between Western and Islamic cultures as well as scholarship that addresses religion/state matters in either of these cultural areas individually. Researchers are invited to submit from any academic field, especially, though not exclusively, from history, political science, literature and religious studies. Paper proposals can cover all time periods, ancient through contemporary, and can reflect all geographic areas.
Please send a 250-word proposal and a one-page CV to:
Department of History, Roger Williams University
Bristol, RI 02809
or electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 5, 2009.
