The Science, Religion, and Culture Program at Harvard Divinity School is soliciting proposals for the third annual Graduate Conference on Religion (October 23-25, 2014 in Cambridge, MA). The conference aims at promoting interdisciplinary discussion of prevailing assumptions (both within and outside the academy) about the differentiation, organization, authorization, and reproduction of various modes of knowing and acting in relation to religion. We invite graduate students and early career scholars to submit paper proposals representative of a variety of theoretical, methodological, and disciplinary approaches.
General Call for Papers: We seek projects that explore religious practices and modes of knowing especially in relation to identities, authorities, discourses, texts, and experiences. Papers may focus on a specific period, region, tradition, person or group. They may address a set of practices, texts, doctrines, or beliefs.
Special Call for Papers: In addition to the general call we seek proposals on the following themes (see conference website for details):
1) “The Study of Religion: Past, Present, and Future”
