CFP: Oxford Symposium on Religious Studies (Old Library of the University Church of St Mary the Virgin, Oxford)

July 8, 2016

The organisers are pleased to invite you to participate in the Oxford Symposium on Religious Studies. The Oxford Symposium on Religious Studies is a forum for discourse and presentation of papers by scholars who have a particular interest in the study of religion.

Registration for their Summer Session (1, 2 & 3 August) is now open. The meeting will be held at The Old Library in the Oxford University Church of St Mary.  Constructed in 1320, The Old Library is the first university (as opposed to college) building in Oxford and therefore uniquely important; this is where the nascent University began.

The sessions will be hosted by Canon Brian Mountford MBE, Vicar of St Mary’s. Dr. Mountford is a Fellow and Chaplain of St Hilda’s College in the University of Oxford.

You are invited to make a presentation and lead a discussion of a relevant aspect of religious studies, or you may wish to participate as a panel member or as an observer. Your disquisition must adhere to an abstract of about 300 words approved by the Programme Committee of the Symposium. You are, also, encouraged to submit a paper, in keeping with your abstract, which may be published in an appropriate journal, book of conference proceedings. All papers presented for publication or inclusion in books or sponsored journals will be subject to peer review by external readers.

The deadline for proposals is 8 July.

The regular registration deadline is 11 July. (Early Registration is 1 June and is £60 less than the regular registration fees).
