The Indiana University Religious Studies Graduate Symposium
Religion, Nature, and Innovation
Thursday, February 25th – Friday, February 26th, 2010
Call for Papers
In conjunction with the Indiana University-Bloomington College of Arts and Sciences ‘themester’ on “Evolution, Diversity, and Change,” the graduate students in the IUB Religious Studies Department are hosting a symposium titled “Religion, Nature, and Innovation.” Though the university-wide interest is in marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Darwin and the 150th anniversary of the publication of Darwin’s On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, we welcome papers focused not only on evolution but a variety of other topics related to nature and innovation broadly construed.
We anticipate topics such as conceptions of nature; the relationship of traditions to environmental movements; innovations in human attempts to manipulate, care for, or submit to the natural world; theories about the natural and supernatural; paradigms of change and evolution within the field of religious studies; understandings of nature in ethics and conceptions of authority; or the nature of religion. We welcome papers from graduate students in any departments and disciplines, beyond religious studies.
Please submit a 300-word abstract by Friday, January 8th, 2010 to firstname.lastname@example.org
