Religious Places and Sacred Spaces (Master's Conference)

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.

Marilynne Robinson has written widely-acclaimed novels and essays that explore the relationship between religion and culture.   Marilynne Robinson Society at the 2019 American Literature Association (ALA) Conference is soliticing proposals that examine how recent developments in post-secular studies can illuminate Robinson’s religious vision. Jurgen Habermas, Talal Asad, Charles Taylor, Jared Hickman, Tracy Fessensden, among other scholars, have led us to reconsider the secularization thesis and the ways in which it has shaped narratives of modernity. We ask how Robinson’s investigation of faith is especially relevant to the growing field of postsecular studies.

What is love? Why is it so important in our lives? And why should we think about it? The subject of love is of enormous importance to our daily lives, as love sustains us and gives meaning to existence. Yet, love seems to be a theme that is underdeveloped in contemporary research. Whatever the reason for that is, love remains one of the central concepts in the history of Western thought. Not only does philosophy literally mean “love for wisdom,” but the discussion of the theme of love has been part philosophy’s inheritance since the time of Plato’s Symposium.
