Religious Places and Sacred Spaces (Master's Conference)

updated: 
Thursday, February 7, 2019 - 7:36am
Duke Graduate School of Religion (Master's Program)
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, February 22, 2019

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.

“Nourishment: Sustaining Resistance” is an inter- and trans-disciplinary graduate student conference at the University of Cincinnati focusing on ways that texts or writing practices nourish and sustain us through times of upheaval and uncertainty. Nourishing can take many forms—from eating a good meal to reading an apt sentence—but all acts of nourishment engage our senses and encourage us to continue working, either as opposers to troubling trends or supporters of positive change.

“Ours is essentially a tragic age, so we refuse to take it tragically. The cataclysm has happened, we are among the ruins, we start to build up new little habitats, to have new little hopes. It is rather hard work: there is now no smooth road into the future: but we go round, or scramble over the obstacles. We’ve got to live, no matter how many skies have fallen.”
D.H. Lawrence
