About The Event

Call for Papers

Date: September 20-22, 2018

Venue: University of South Africa, Pretoria, South Africa

Proposal Submission Deadline: February 1, 2018

The discipline of Christian Spirituality at the University of South Africa (UNISA) and the Department of Systematic and Practical Theology, University of Latvia, invite proposals for a third international conference in the series: “Spirituality, Theology, Education”. The intention of the conference is to facilitate a wider inter-disciplinary and cross-cultural forum where researchers, scholars and others engaged in the study and practice of spirituality in diverse disciplines can:

• share and debate their research;
• draw comparative perspectives and insights from different cultures;
• incorporate different forms of writing and expressions of spirituality;
• explore new methodological approaches; and
• identify new agendas for research into spirituality.

These may include ways in which spirituality can be taught, or asking why it is we sometimes allow our critical faculties to be diluted when working with spirituality.

To this end, the conference welcomes contributions that will critically examine spirituality in the following disciplines:

• Christian Spirituality
• Music and Spirituality
• Law and Spirituality
• Religion and Spirituality
• Biblical Spirituality
• Anthropology and Spirituality
• Sociology and Spirituality
• Psychology and Spirituality
• Primary Spiritualities
• Contextuality and Spirituality

Other topics related to the broad themes of the conference may be proposed.

Proposals for papers should include:

– A succinct title
– A brief abstract (± 150 words)
– The name/s and (where applicable) institutional affiliation/s of the author/s

Papers may be proposed and delivered in any language.

Closing date for proposals: 1 February 2018
