Religion and Society in the United Kingdom (19th-21st centuries)
7-8 October 2010, Rennes 2 University, Rennes, France
The Research team for British Studies (Anglophonie: Communautés, Ecritures), Rennes, is hosting a two-day international conference on Religion and Society in the United Kingdom (19th-21st centuries). This conference will explore the changing nature and role of religion in British society, taking into consideration the fact that the Church of England is an established Church.
We hope to bring scholars from a wide variety of fields: history, sociology, religious studies, etc. and invite papers to focus on one of the following areas of research:
• Religious practices and beliefs in Britain
• The secularisation debate
• The attitudes of the different churches in Britain towards women
• The debate around gay priesthood
• The links between religion and politics
• The disestablishment of the Church of England in the United Kingdom and the debate around its disestablishment in England.
Conference organiser: Professor Claire Charlot, English Studies, University of Rennes 2
Please send a 300-word abstract of papers in English or French to firstname.lastname@example.org by 25 August 2010.
