Subject: Call for Papers – XXI World Congress of the IAHR


The organizers of the XXI IAHR World Congress, Congress presidents Prof. Dr. Jörg Rüpke (Erfurt) and Prof. Dr. Christoph Bochinger (Bayreuth) and Congress coordinator Dr. Elisabeth Begemann (Erfurt), invite contributions from all disciplines of religious studies and related fields of research to allow for broad, interdisciplinary discussion of the Congress topic.

Papers should address one of the four thematic Congress areas:

  • Religious communities in society: Adaptation and transformation
  • Practices and discourses: Innovation and tradition
  • The individual: Religiosity, spiritualities and individualization
  • Methodology: Representations and interpretations

Papers should be limited to 20 minutes. Individual papers on related topics will be joint into a panel of 120 minutes. Panel chairs will have to make sure that a minimum of 30 minutes is reserved for discussion. We strongly suggest to further academic exchange by forming trans-national and trans-continental panels.

All paper proposals will be evaluated by the Academic Program Committee to ensure a high academic standard of the Congress program. Proposals of papers should not exceed 150 words, as indicated on the proposal form.

The deadline for submission of proposals is Sunday, December 14, 2014. All proposals must be submitted electronically via the IAHR 2015 website (www.iahr2015.org). As part of the submission process, you will be asked to indicate the area in which you would like your proposal considered. Your proposal will then be forwarded to the appropriate member of the Academic Program Committee.

You will receive notice concerning the status of your proposal as soon as possible and certainly before March 1, 2015.

If your paper has been accepted by the Academic Program Committee, please note that you will have to register as Congress participant before May 15, 2015 to be included in the Congress program.

Grants-in-aid for participants to the Congress will also be provided. For more information, visit http://www.iahr2015.org/iahr-registration/1698.html.
