Christianity and Politics Conference
University of Turku
22–23 November 2018
We are pleased to announce that the call for paper submissions to open panels of the conference Christianity and Politics is now open!
Christianity and Politics is a two-day inter-disciplinary conference to be organised at the University of Turku, Finland, in November 2018. The conference zooms in on Christianity with a critical focus on the examination of the relationship between Christianity and politics especially in the West. Under scrutiny will be the manifold ways in which Christianity and politics have been and are intertwined and exist in relation to one another, both in the past and in the contemporary world.
Keynote speakers in the conference are:
Dr. Timothy Fitzgerald – The Centre for Critical Research on Religion.
Dr. Saara Särmä – Finnish National Defence University
Dr. Sylvain Piron – L’École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS)
In addition, there will be a roundtable discussion with Professor Daniel Bornstein (Washington University in St. Louis).
The call for paper submissions to open panels (max. 200 words) is open until 30 April.
Submission of paper abstracts to open panels should be made through the conference webpage at christianityconf.utu.fi. List of panels and their abstracts can be found on the “Abstracts for Open Panels” page. Panel convenor(s) will accept or reject paper abstracts submitted to their panel. If rejected, abstracts may still be accepted as individual papers by the conference organisers. If a suitable open panel cannot be found, an individual paper without panel affiliation can also be submitted by using the same “Individual Paper Proposals” form.
Conference fee is 50 € (does not include Conference Dinner).
The conference is organised by the Centre for the Study of Christian Cultures, University of Turku
