Religion and Spirituality in Society Conference 2011


Welcome to the website of the 2011 International Conference on Religion and Spirituality in Society. The 2011 Conference will be held in University Center, Chicago, USA from 15-17 February 2011.

The 2011 Religion and Spirituality in Society Conference will address a range of critically important issues and themes relating to the Religion and Spirituality in Society Conference. Plenary speakers include some of the leading thinkers in these areas, as well as numerous paper, colloquium and workshop presentations.

We invite prospective participants to submit a presentation proposal for one of the following parallel session options: a 30-minute paper; a 60-minute workshop; a jointly presented 90-minute colloquium session; or a virtual session. We also encourage innovative presentation formats, such as roundtables, staged dialogues, screenings and performances. Parallel sessions are loosely grouped into streams reflecting different perspectives or disciplines. Each stream forms a talking circle, an informal forum for focused discussion of issues and conference themes.

Participants may choose to submit written papers before or after the conference for possible publication in the peer reviewed The International Journal of Religion and Spirituality in Society. Virtual participants also have the option to submit papers for consideration by the journal. All registered conference participants receive a complimentary online subscription to the Journal when registration is finalised. This subscription is valid until one year after the conference end-date.
