Sacred and secular: Researching the role of religion in contemporary Europe

Call for papers

Sacred and secular: Researching the role of religion in contemporary Europe

University of Leicester, Friday 21 June 2013

This one-day workshop seeks to provide an important opportunity for developing collaborative links between early-career researchers, doctoral researchers and practitioners. The main aims are: (1) to develop a research agenda relating to the role of religion in the politics of European countries, looking at its interaction with political parties, civil society, public opinion and governing institutions; and (2) to facilitate an intellectual exchange on the differing methodological approaches, analytical frameworks and theoretical perspectives used to study religion and its role in the political process.

The workshop will involve both panels for the presentation of research and a roundtable discussion featuring representatives from leading think-tanks.

We have a small number of places available for those who wish to attend.

Proposals for papers should include a title and an abstract of up to 200 words.

To submit proposals, or for further information, please contact Dr Ben Clements at

Deadline for proposals: 8 May 2013

With kind regards

Dr Ben Clements and Dr Simona Guerra
