Religious Studies Opportunities Digest – 16 November 2017

Welcome to the latest RSP opportunities digest – slightly delayed – where you will find details of five conference calls for papers, a day conference, an essay prize, and a new database. If you come across any opportunities of relevance to the global RS community, or if you want to promote anything yourself, then simply send an email to and we’ll see what we can do.

Thank you so much to everyone who has signed up to support the RSP thus far through our Patreon–and PayPal options. We are aiming for 100 patrons (currently 15) to fund planned developments over the coming year.
