Harvard’s Science, Religion & Culture program invites graduate student proposals for October conference

The Science, Religion, and Culture Program at Harvard Divinity School is soliciting proposals for the third annual graduate conference on religion at Harvard Divinity School (October 23-25, 2014). The conference aims at promoting interdisciplinary discussion of prevailing assumptions (both within and outside the academy) about the differentiation, organization, authorization, and reproduction of various modes of knowing and acting in relation to religion. We invite graduate students and early career scholars to submit paper proposals representative of a variety of theoretical, methodological, and disciplinary approaches.

General Call: For projects that explore religious practices and modes of knowing especially in relation to identities, authorities, discourses, texts, and experiences. Papers may focus on a specific period, region, tradition, person or group. They may address a set of practices, texts, doctrines, or beliefs.
Special Calls:
1) “The Study of Religion: Past, Present, and Future”
2) “Religion and Environmental Imagination”
3) “Epistemologies of Emotion”
4) “Religious Meaning of Skin”
Submission Deadline: July 1, 2014
For further details on the Call for Papers, please see the conference website: www.hds.harvard.edu/gradreligionconference
