Fifth International Conference on Religion and Spirituality in Society


University of California at Berkeley
Berkeley, USA
16-17 April 2015

Dear Delegate,

The International Advisory Board is pleased to announce the Call For Papers for the Fifth International Conference on Religion and Spirituality in Society being held at the University of California at Berkeley in Berkeley, USA from 16-17 April.


"Social Movements and Faith"

Religious commitments are, as often as not, social commitments. In addition to its usual range of themes, this year's special focus of the Religion and Society knowledge community is the relation of religion to social movements, ranging from movements for nominally "progressive" or "liberal" social change, to "fundamentalisms" whose religious practices are often explicitly or implicitly social and political. The conference will ask the questions: Under what conditions and to what extent are religious communities social activists, either in their doctrine or their practices? How do religious communities support or align with other social movements?

The 2015 meeting will feature a special focus on this provocative subject. We welcome open debate, discourse, and research from participants that center on this special topic, as well as any other themes or issues relevant to religion and spirituality in society.


Proposals for paper presentations, workshops, focused discussions or colloquia are invited that address the broader themes listed below. In addition to the special focus, paper presentations will be grouped into one of the following categories for presentation at the conference:

Theme 1: Religious Foundations
Theme 2: Religious Community and Socialization
Theme 3: Religious Commonalities and Differences
Theme 4: The Politics of Religion
Theme 5: Social Movements and Faith

Proposals for in-person presentations should be submitted by 16 FEBRUARY 2015 (title and short abstract). Proposals submitted after this day will be accommodated in non-themed sessions at the conference or are eligible for community membership registrations (no attendance to the conference is required with community membership presentations).
