The Science, Religion, and Culture Program at Harvard Divinity School announces the third annual graduate conference on religion. Last year, 120 students and early career scholars representing 60 graduate programs from across the United States and the world gathered to present their research. Following the success of our previous conferences, this multi-day event will be comprised of thematic panels that cross religious traditions, academic disciplines, and intellectual and theological commitments. 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.

General Call: We invite graduate students and early career scholars to submit paper proposals that explore religious practices and modes of knowing in relation to identities, authorities, discourses, texts, and experiences. Papers may focus on a specific period, region, tradition, person or group, and/or a set of practices, texts, doctrines, or beliefs. Projects that are primarily sociological, anthropological, theological, ethical, textual, historical, or philosophical are welcome, as are projects indebted to multiple disciplines.

Special Calls: This year’s conference will also feature 4 thematic modules. Several panels will be devoted to each of the following themes:
1) “The Study of Religion: Past, Present, and Future”
2) “Religion and Environmental Imagination”
3) “Epistemologies of Emotion”
4) “Religious Meaning of Skin”
