From Monday, March 5th to Thursday, March 8th, 2018, Bologna will host the first annual meeting of the European Academy of Religion.
The European Academy of Religion (EuARe) is a new constellation in European scholarship which was established in 2016 with the support of the European parliament. It aims to create an inclusive network, to act as an open platform, and to provide a framework to foster research, communication, exchange and cooperation concerning important religious issues for the academic world and society at large.
The program of the EuARe Conference 2018 will be composed of plenary (lectiones magistrales and roundtables) and working sessions (panels and papers).
On Tuesday 6th and Wednesday 7th, the Conference will host an international Moot Court Competition in Law & Religion, organized in cooperation with ICLARS – International Consortium for Law & Religion Studies.
In the location of the event, a display space reserved for publishers will be set up. Publishers are invited to organize book presentations with authors and to advertise their participation on their websites and in newsletters in order to draw public attention to their works and encourage attendance.
The Call has been recently published on the EuARe website: there you will find all the information you need about the Conference program and your participation (deadlines, registration fees, travel grants and accommodation).
If you wish to contribute to the Conference by convening a panel or applying for a single paper, we remind you that the deadline for proposal submission is Wednesday, December 20th (submission forms can be found here: https://www.europeanacademyofreligion.org/program). Registrations to the Conference, instead, will be open until Friday, February 16th (https://www.europeanacademyofreligion.org/registration). Early rates for registration will be available until December 20th (early bird) and February 16th (regular). After this date only on-site registration will be possible.
We also remind you that, starting this year, the EuARe will be granting memberships. Members will have the benefits of discounted conference rates and will be invited to join and participate in the next General Assembly, which will meet on Tuesday 6th of March. The Call will also give you more detailed information about the membership rates and the General Assembly. Membership application forms are available here: https://www.europeanacademyofreligion.org/membership.
Help us spread the word about the Conference, and circulate the Call among your university departments, institutions and societies, colleagues and students.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Bologna!
