Subject: Conference on Religion and Spirituality in Society, Chicago, 15-17
February, 2011 - Call for Papers

Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the Conference Advisory Board, I would like to inform you of

University Center      
Chicago, Illinois      
15-17 February, 2011      

The Religion and Spirituality in Society Conference sets out to describe,
analyze, and interpret the role of religion and spirituality in society. The
bases of this endeavor are cross-disciplinary. The intellectual project is
neutral with respect to the agendas of particular religions or explicit
counterpoints to religion such as agnosticism or atheism. The Religion and
Spirituality in Society Conference serves as a forum for those interested in
the pursuit of scholarly conversation surrounding the key issues that impact
the relationship between religion and society. The conference is intended as
a space for careful, scholarly reflection and open dialogue while
recognizing that a tension exists between the academic conversation and the
practice of religious and spiritual traditions.
The Religion and Spirituality in Society Conference includes plenary
presentations by leading thinkers in the field of religious study, and
parallel paper, workshop and colloquium presentations by researchers and
practitioners from a wide range of disciplines, professions and fields of
study. Participants are invited to submit a presentation proposal for a
30-minute paper, 60-minute workshop, or a jointly presented 90-minute
colloquium session.

Presenters may also choose to submit their written papers for publication in
the peer-refereed International Journal of Religion and Society. Those who
are unable to attend the conference in person are welcome to submit a
virtual registration, which allows for submission of a paper for refereeing
and possible publication in the journal, as well as an option to upload a
video presentation to the conference YouTube channel.

The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short
abstract) is 27 May, 2010. Future deadlines will be announced on the
conference website after this date. Proposals are reviewed within two weeks
of submission. Full details of the conference, including an online proposal
submission form, may be found at the conference website:

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago in February, 2011.

Yours Sincerely,

Garett Gietzen      
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
