2012 Australian Association for the Study of Religion Conference
University of Western Sydney
Parramatta Campus, 28-30 September 2012
Deadline for submissions of abstracts (individual paper or panel
proposals): 31 May, 2012
At the local and global level, religion is changed through social processes, but religion also impacts on societies at the structural and grass roots levels. As modernity and (de)secularisation are multilateral processes, the conference explores the multiple types of (de)centralisation, pluralism and voluntarism of religious life.
First Call for Individual or Panel Presentations
â€¢ Individual paper proposals (200-300 words) â€¢ Panel proposals (200 word for the panel concept and 200-300 words on each panel paper).
â€¢ For each paper, please provide a bio (up to 50 words) of the presenter(s).
â€¢ Please submit your abstract to Alan Nixon at: A.Nixon@uws.edu.au
