Oh, the Humanities!: Past, Present and Future Trends in the Discipline.
DUE DECEMBER 5th, 2013

Submissions are welcomed for the 20th Annual Graduate Interdisciplinary Conference
Thursday, March 6th, 2014, Concordia University
Faculty Lounge, Hall Building, 1455 de Maisonneuve Blvd. West, Montreal

In celebration of the Department of Religion's 55th anniversary, the Journal of Religion and Culture 25th anniversary and the Annual Graduate Interdisciplinary Conference 20th anniversary, we invite papers that explore the trends within the scholarship of humanities and social sciences. How did the disciplines change? How were they perceived throughout time? How did the scholarship contest and change society? What were their influences on culture, and how influential were the academics in mainstream society? What challenges do humanities and social science studies face today? And finally, what are exciting new ideas, methodologies, and innovations?

The 20th Annual Graduate Interdisciplinary Conference is putting together a Special Interest Section dedicated solely to the concept of how the humanities and social sciences have changed, the trends of scholarship and the disciplines' influence in society. We invite papers from areas of the humanities, art, and social sciences to form a special interest section that discusses the various aspects of their birth, growth, and continued development within cultures, societies, and religion.

All accepted presenters will have the opportunity to enter a peer-reviewed essay contest, with a first place prize of 100$, and a second place prize of 50$.

Presentations in either French or English are encouraged. Proposals may be submitted by e-mail. Proposals are to be no more than one page and must include a publication-ready, titled abstract of 150-200 words. The name, e-mail address, university affiliation and level of study of the presenter(s) must also be included. Any special requests or needs for audio-visual equipment must also be indicated. Proposals should be submitted no later than December 5th, 2013. All received submissions will be acknowledged, with notification of acceptance, by mid December. Please note that authors will have the option of submitting their papers for online publication as part of the Journal of Religion and Culture's Conference Proceedings series, a non-peer reviewed division of the academic journal produced by the graduate students of Concordia University.
