About The Event
Call for Papers
Date: December 4-6, 2017
Venue: The Old Library of the University Church of St Mary the Virgin, Oxford, UK
Sponsored by: Oxford Academic Symposia
Abstract Submission Deadline: November 10, 2017
The Oxford Symposium on Religious Studies is a forum for discourse and presentation of papers by scholars who have an interest in the study of religion.
The meetings 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, former Vicar of St Mary’s. Dr Mountford is a Fellow of St Hilda’s College in the University of Oxford.
Scholars are invited to present a paper on an aspect of religious studies, or they may wish to attend as an observer. The symposium is inter-disciplinary and has a broad-based theme. The disquisition must adhere to an abstract of about 300 words approved by the Program Committee of the Symposium. All papers presented for publication or inclusion in books or sponsored journals will be subject to peer review by external readers.
The abstract submission deadline is 10 November. Early registration expires 16 October, and the last payment date is 15 November 2017.
