The conference of the International Society for Media, Religion, and Culture is calling papers on the topic “Media, Religion and Public Scholarship”. The conference will be held 8-11 of August 2018 in Boulder, Colorado, United States.
“The new visibility of religion in public life is a theme of growing relevance in academic research as well as in public policy making. This increasingly visible trend emphasizes the societal impact of research and invites scholars of media and religion to actively take part in public debate and negotiation over the meaning and significance of religion in contemporary society. Consequently, new possibilities for dialogue with academia, media and society emerge and may result in better understandings of the role of religion in present public life”, the call states.
Deadline for panel and paper proposals is 4 December 2017.
