We are issuing a Call for Papers on the role of humility, broadly conceived, in the practice and study of religion for the annual graduate student conference in the Department of Religion at Columbia University. The conference will be held in New York City on 01 April, 2011.
Whether understood as a position or disposition, the category of humility (the state of being low; the absence of self-assertion or self-exaltation; the converse of pride) has the potential to relate to numerous aspects within the study of religion. These include but are not limited to the (overlapping) areas of 1) religious epistemology and belief, 2) ritual and practice, 3) history, politics, and power and 4) comparative religious ethics.
For a more-detailed CFP, please see www.columbia.edu/cu/religion-gsa/.
Please submit an abstract of no more than 500 words to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 December, 2010. Include your name, department, institution, tentative presentation title, and (if applicable) requests for audiovisual technology.
