CFP — Denton Conference in Implicit Religion

 In Call for Papers, Uncategorized

Dear Colleague,

The 36th Denton Conference in Implicit Religion (i.e. secular faith) will be held from Friday May 10 (6pm) until Sunday May 12 (2.30pm) 2013, at Denton Hall, Ilkley, West Yorkshire, U.K.

The Denton Conferences are noted for giving opportunity to confer, as the entire event takes place in the Hall (built in 1776) itself, which only has 26 bedrooms (all ensuite): most are doubles, but this limits attendance to about 40.

Our current custom is to circulate Papers electronically ten days in advance, in order to devote the maximum time to their discussion. In this way, the presenter of each Paper can “speak to” their presentation (relatively informally) for 5-10 minutes, and then have the benefit of 20-40 minutes’ discussion.

The time available for discussion depends on the number of Papers being presented during the Weekend. Offers of Papers are now invited: please submit an Abstract of your proposal. The possibility of half a dozen have so far been mentioned: there is therefore space for up to a dozen more suggestions.

The total cost (including accommodation) is £30 (Deposit) plus £110 (Conference). The Deposit should be paid by cheque (to C.S.I.R.C.S.), in pounds sterling, upon Registration. The remaining Fee may be paid (by cheque or in cash, but in sterling, please) in advance or upon arrival. (Those without sterling accounts are welcome to pay, by arrangement, both sums together, either in advance or upon arrival, to avoid their incurring two sets of bank charges.) Registration is now welcome.

Participants in the Conference are very welcome to bring with them examples of their own publications. It is my custom also to bring books that are available for Review in CSIRCS’s journal, Implicit Religion. If you would be interested in Reviewing a book for the Journal, I would be very pleased to hear your particular interests, now (whether or not you are coming to the Denton Conference).

Hoping to hear from you, and meanwhile best wishes for 2013!

Edward Bailey.
