Call for papers – Spalding Symposium

The 39th Spalding Symposium on Indian Religions

25th-27th April 2014

Venue: Luther King House – Manchester

The Spalding Symposium on Indian Religions invites papers on Indic religious cultures and traditions. The Spalding Symposium is an annual conference bringing together scholars from many disciplines who are working in the general areas of Indic Studies. It is funded by the Spalding Trust. Papers on Jain, Hindu, Buddhist, Parsi, Sikh and sub-continental Christianity or Islam are welcome, as are those that examine Indian religions as diasporic or global communities.

We invite proposals for 45 minute papers, with 15 minutes for discussion. Proposals in the form of a title, a short abstract and a brief biographical statement including affiliation should be sent, by February 3rd, to Dermot Killingly.


It is expected that a selection of papers from the Symposium will be published in our peer-reviewed journal, Religions of South Asia (RoSA). However, giving a paper at the Symposium does not guarantee inclusion in the journal.

Speakers, papers and a provisional programme will be posted on the Spalding website as soon as they become available.
