This year nepUL is pleased to announce the new CFA for its new International Political Studies Colloquium: More Representation = Democracy?.There has been a growing debate within the media and academic realm in what democracy is concerned. We may often consider the legitimacy of our democracy when hearing an emerging expression of feelings of distrust towards politicians, increasing abstention in many democratic countries and raise of social frustration which leads to the election of so-called extremist parties, non-politicians and populist views. As so, is representation a sufficient condition for the existance of a democratic society or is it only necessary?

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.

The twentieth-century literature and culture tended to explore and to celebrate subjectivity. But this tendency did not mean the turn to the self, but beyond the self, or as Charles Taylor puts it, “to a fragmentation of experience which calls our ordinary notions of identity into question”.
