Scholarships: Programme on Interreligious Dialogue

I am delighted to send you our call for applications for the European Scholarship Programme@DialoguePerspectives with the request to forward them to your partners and to help us spread the word!

We are looking for future change agents in the field of interreligious/world view dialogue, and we are grateful for your assistance in identifying potential participants of our program.

As you may know, over the past five years we have established a highly successful format for interreligious dialogue with the ELES-Program DialoguePerspectives, in which over 160 gifted and socially engaged students and doctoral candidates have participated.

With the European Scholarship Program@DialoguePerspectives we are now taking a crucial step in strengthening the European perspective and, thanks to the support of the Federal Foreign Office, are building an independent European program track that enables us to work together with European students and doctoral candidates from Great Britain, France, Poland, Hungary, Sweden and Luxembourg. We want to work together with our fellows to develop strategies against (right-) populism and nationalism and for an open, pluralistic and democratic Europe.

We are looking forward to this new challenge! And time is running out: already at the end of September, the first of four seminars will take place in the new program year. Therefore, I ask for your support and I appreciate your help by distributing the attached call for applications into your networks.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Johanna Korneli (korneli@dialogperspektiven.demailto:korneli@dialogperspektiven.de).

RESEARCH COMMITTEE 22: SOCIOLOGY OF RELIGION
Call for Abstracts
“Challenges of the 21st century for sociology of religion”

Program Coordinators:

  • Eloísa Martín, United Arab Emirates University, UAE
  • Juan Cruz Esquivel, University of Buenos Aires/ CONICET, Argentina
  • Roberta Bivar Carneiro, Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil

The debate on religion, its role, its development, and its future has been intense, extensive and sophisticated during the last few decades. Religion is both a central phenomenon itself and a key variable that can be used to explain economic, social, and political phenomena. Both facets require continuous in-depth research. In recent years, many sociologists have begun to identify limits to the current approach to religious phenomena, and especially to the definitions of religion developed in the West. A number of authors have extended this critique to the ways sociologists currently explain and interpret “religion” in the 21st Century. Though still emerging, such accounts have opened new paths by which sociologists of religion can face both the empirical and theoretical challenges of our era.

We invite abstracts for the following sessions:

We will also be including the following invited sessions in our RC22 program:

Call for Papers: Conference on Rethinking​ ​Media, Religion and Secularities, 4-7 August 2020

Conference of the International Society for Media, Religion and Culture Conference location: Sigtuna Foundation, Sigtuna, Sweden. Conference dates: 4-7 of August 2020. Deadline for Paper proposals: 6 December 2019.

Religion, as humanity’s oldest expression of values, identity and community, has always been a mediated practice. In contemporary society religious ideas are communicated, learned, represented, enacted and resisted through various forms of media. Religion circulates through social media, is discussed in the news and becomes a source of imagery for film and television.

The International Society for Media, Religion and Culture (ISMRC) was founded in 2010 out of a series of conferences on the interplay between media, religion and culture starting in 1994. Today the ISMRC is a vibrant research community of scholars with a large variety of international, disciplinary and religious backgrounds, covering topics such as journalism on religion; religion, popular culture and entertainment; and digital religion.

The ISMRC organizes biennial conferences and the Journal of Religion, Media and Digital Culture (RMDC) is published by Brill in cooperation with the ISMRC.

    Call for book proposals

    Bloomsbury welcomes book proposals for Bloomsbury Studies in Material Religion, edited by Birgit Meyer (University of Utrecht, the Netherlands), David Morgan (Duke University, USA), Crispin Paine (UCL, UK), S. Brent Plate (Hamilton College, USA), and Amy Whitehead (Bath Spa University, UK).

      • This is the first book series dedicated exclusively to studies in material religion. Within the field of lived religion, the series is concerned with the material things with which people do religion, and how these things – objects, buildings, landscapes – relate to people, their bodies, clothes, food, actions, thoughts and emotions. The series engages and advances theories in ‘sensuous’ and ‘experiential’ religion, as well as informing museum practices and influencing wider cultural understandings with relation to religious objects and performances. Books in the series are at the cutting edge of debates as well as developments in fields including religious studies, anthropology, museum studies, art history, and material culture studies.
      • Forthcoming titles: Christianity and the Limits of Materiality,Minna Opas and Anna Haapalainen (University of Turku, Finland) Materiality, Practice, and Performance at Sacred Sites in India and Pakistan, Navtej K. Purewal (SOAS, University of London, UK) and Virinder S. Kalra (University of Manchester, UK) Food, Festival and Religion, Francesca Ciancimino Howell (Naropa University, USA) Museums of World Religions, Charles Orzech (University of Glasgow, UK).
