Call for Papers: Session on ”Social Theory and Religion”, International Society for the Sociology of Religion, July 2-5, Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium

(in either French or English)

Social Theory and Religion / La Théorie sociale et le religieux

The aim of this session is to stimulate debate about theoretical ideas that have a bearing on sociological research on religion. With reference to the conference theme – Sensing Religion – we invite papers that focus on, but are not limited to, discussing theorisations of religion and the senses. Contributions are welcome from researchers applying both familiar and less familiar traditions of social theory to the study of religion.


Le but de cette session est de stimuler le débat sur les idées théoriques ayant un impact sur la recherche sociologique sur la religion. En ce qui concerne le thème de la conférence—Éprover le religieux—nous encourageons la soumission d’articles portant, principalement, mais pas uniquement, sur une discussion des théorisations de la religion et des sens. Les contributions de chercheurs appliquant des traditions de théorie sociale aussi bien connues que moins connues à l’étude de la religion sont les bienvenues.​
