Call For Papers: “Across Time and Space: Religious Transmission in Cross-Cultural and Cross-Generational Contexts”
November 30, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 11:55 pm
The Department of Religious Studies at Duke University is hosting a one-day graduate conference on February 26, 2016. They invite Masters students across disciplines to submit proposals pertaining to transmission within religious contexts. While transmission encompasses such formal and institutional practices as the transmission of lineage, scripture, and authority within a tradition, Across Time and Space will examine this conception alongside less codified forms of transmission, whether in the form of collective memories and identity moving across generations or in the reception of religious stories, practices, or ideas across cultures.
Accepted speakers will be accommodated for two nights at a local hotel and will be reimbursed for flights to the conference (US domestic flights only). Please send abstracts no longer than 300 words, a list of key terms, and a one-page CV to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com on or before November 30, 2015. Presentations of papers will be limited to 20 minutes each. Participants will be notified of their acceptance on December 10, 2015 and final papers must be submitted by January 26, 2016.
