Conference Date: April 4-6, 2019

 

Why are space and place important categories for the study of religion? What role do these categories have in formulating concepts of religion? Scholars have attempted to not only theorize space but also to employ it in their work to better understand how humans interact with the spaces around them. These spaces are not confined to physical spaces. We invite papers that address, ask, and employ any discussion regarding space or place concering religion. Scholarly work is not restricted to one single field, and neither is this conference! We welcome proposals from all fields of interest and relevant disciples.

 

Living and travel expenses are covered by the department.
