Theory Faith Culture

— an international interdisciplinary conference —

Cardiff University

4 – 6 July 2007

Second Call for Papers

Religion is one of the most contested aspects of twenty-first century life. How can we understand and theorise the power of religion in the constitution of subjects and in its social, cultural and political manifestations?

This conference will look at the interface between Theory, Faith and Culture. It will explore a range of theoretical approaches to the subject and attempt to further our understanding of some of the most important and pressing issues of the day.

To date we have received over 80 exciting proposals from all over the world. Given this enthusiastic response to our first call for papers, we are extending the deadline for the submission of proposals for further papers until 15 April 2007

Papers are welcomed from all relevant disciplines.
