First Conference of the Irish Society for the Academic Study of Religions (ISASR)

Emerging Perspectives: Religions and Ireland

We are pleased to invite scholars to take part in the first conference of the Irish Society for the Academic Study of Religions (ISASR)

The Conference will take place Fri-Sat May 25th – 26th, 2012 at University College Cork and is open to scholars of all disciplines that approach religions, both past and present, from a non-theological, critical, analytical and cross-cultural perspective. We invite papers from scholars working in Ireland on all aspects of religion both at home and globally, and from scholars worldwide who work on religions in Ireland or themes connected with Ireland. As this is the first conference of ISASR, paper proposals on any aspect of religion, both in Ireland and the wider world that contribute to Ireland’s engagement with the academic study of religions, will be considered. For information on this newly formed society, see: http://isasr.wordpress.com/.

Please send a 150-200 word abstract for papers to James Kapalo (j.kapalo@ucc.ie) by closing date Friday March 2nd, 2012. Notification of abstract acceptance will be given by April 2nd, 2012.
