Call for Papers
We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the Eighth International Conference on Religion & Spirituality in Society, held 17–18 April 2018 at the University of California at Berkeley in Berkeley, USA.
Founded in 2011, the conference brings together scholars, teachers, and practitioners to reflect on the relationships of religion and spirituality to society. The conference aims to provide a space for careful, scholarly reflection and open dialogue.
We invite proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, colloquia, innovation showcases, virtual posters, or virtual lightning talks. The conference features research addressing the annual themes.

Scopes & Concerns
List of Accepted Proposals
Emerging Scholar Awards
Submit your proposal by 17 September 2017.
We welcome the submission of proposals to the conference at any time of the year before the final submission deadline. All proposals will be reviewed within two to four weeks of submission.
If you are unable to attend the conference in person, you may present in a virtual poster session or a virtual lightning talk. Virtual Sessions enable participants to present work to a body of peers and to engage with colleagues from afar.
As virtual participants, presenters are scheduled in the formal program, have access to select conference content, can submit an article for peer review and possible publication, may upload an online presentation, and can enjoy Annual Membership to the research network and subscriber access to The International Journal of Religion and Spirituality in Society.
