British Association for the Study of Religions

Call for papers

Annual Conference 2012

Borders, Boundaries and Transgressions:

within and between religions

University of Winchester, UK

5-7 September

Scholars of religion and religions are invited to submit paper proposals

related to the topic. The question of what religion is, whether there is

such a thing, and, if so, what may constitute the borders and boundaries

are matters of dispute. Papers exploring these topics, broadly

conceived, including discussions of transgressions, whether within or

between traditions or the conceptualization of the debates, are welcome.

Confirmed speakers include:

Douglas Davies, University of Durham

Ron Geaves, Liverpool Hope University

Papers will be 20 minutes (with 10 minutes discussion).

Proposals in the form of a title, a short abstract (300 words max.), and

a brief biographical statement, including affiliation should be sent, by

Friday 1st June 2012, to:

Dr Paul Hedges, BASR Conference, Theology & Religious Studies,

University of Winchester,

SO22 4NR, UK or paul.hedges@winchester.ac.uk

Details of costs, accommodation, bursaries for postgraduate students,

etc. will be available shortly on the BASR website http://www.basr.ac.uk
