Beyond 'Religion versus Emancipation’


Conference Call for Papers: Religious Transformation & Gender

May 14, 2020.

As our research project slowly draws to an end, we are currently working hard to organize our final conference in March of 2021. We hope to be able to welcome you all in Utrecht between 10 and 12 March 2021 for a three-day conference entitled “Religious Transformation and Gender
Contestations in/and the study of religion, gender and sexuality”. More information about the programme can be found here. We have invited several keynote speakers, who will be announced shortly.

Despite the COVID-19 crisis, which is currently controlling all of our lives globally (not to mention transformative of lives, bodies, and religion as well), we are still working hard to organise the conference physically in Utrecht – although we are also investigating options to host the meeting online if that turns out to be the safest option and best solution to meet each other in March of next year.

We invite contributions from various fields, the full description of the theme can be found here. Deadline for individual papers and panel proposals is October 14th, 2020. The programme will be finalised in the end of October and registration will open early November 2020.
