Call for Papers: 500 years – The Reformation and its Resonations
Confirmed Keynote Speakers:
- Rev Dr Peter Clarkson Matheson. Emeritus Professor Knox Theological College, Dunedin and Fellow of the Department of Theology and Religious Studies, University of Otago, New Zealand.
We invite papers from those working across disciplines to contribute to a two-day symposium on the half millennium anniversary of the Reformation and how it resonates today.
The Reformation was a seismic shift that challenged the establishment, set off a chain of events and profoundly altered the course of history.
This symposium seeks to investigate the events of 1517, what led to them, their immediate and later aftermath, and how they still resonate today.
We welcome papers in any disciplinary field including, but not limited to Religious Studies, the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences that contribute to understanding and that promote discussion and debate on this topic. Suggested approaches include interdisciplinary scholarship, cross-cultural and inter-religious engagement in literature and theology, history, exegesis, anthropology, social sciences, cultural studies and political theory.
Abstracts of no more than 300 words should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 30 April 2017. In the body of your email, please include your name, institution if applicable, contact information, and the title of your paper.
Accepted abstracts will appear in the conference programme. It is the lead author’s responsibility to ensure their abstract is accurate and ready for publication at the time of submission.
Papers should be no longer than 20 minutes in length in order to accommodate questions.
Presentations and subsequent discussions will be livestreamed via the internet and will be digitally archived and made available for future reference.
We encourage the use of accessible language and approaches to communicate concepts and ideas.
Applications for accommodation and travel cost reimbursements may be considered.
