Call For Submissions: Empowerment And The Sacred Conference, 2011
At a moment when the ‘resurgence of religion’ is calling into question the secular orientation of global futures, we ask: isn’t it time for cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary debate about the role that the sacred plays in our ideas and our histories of personal and collective agency, power and change?
THE EVENT: This conference will bring together scholars, professionals and arts practitioners to investigate the ways in which sacred traditions – in diverse cultural and historical contexts – have shaped discourses and practices of empowerment, emancipation, change, resistance and survival.
CALL FOR PAPERS – OPEN NOW: We invite proposals for 20-minute presentations, addressing the relationship between empowerment and the sacred, to be given at the conference. See full CFP »
Deadline: March 30, 2011
