Religious Diversity in Atlantic Canada: Building Collaborative Research Capacity for the Present and the Future.

May 28-29, 2013

Saint Mary’s University, Halifax, NS

Themes for the Workshop: What kinds of research projects are students interested in religion pursuing? From which disciplinary perspectives is this research taking shape? How is this research furthering our understanding of religious diversity at home and elsewhere? How can we enhance research collaboration among faculty and students in region?

Call for Papers to Graduate Students from the Atlantic Region: This workshop is an opportunity for undergraduate honours and graduate students from a variety of academic disciplines in the Atlantic region to come together to share their research on issues related to religions. The workshop will also enable emerging scholars of religion to begin to form professional networks, something critical to future research.

Students Eligible to submit Proposals: Honours thesis and graduate students are invited to submit paper proposals for this workshop. Graduate students may be at any stage in their studies and therefore papers can focus on theoretical, historical, or methodological issues related to the research process, or they can report on research findings from their preliminary to final form. Undergraduate students submitting abstracts based on honours thesis research will also be considered.

Proposal Format: Please provide a title and an abstract of 150-200 words for your proposed paper. The abstract submission should include your name, degree program, departmental and institutional affiliation, name of supervisor, and contact information.

There will be a $25.00 student registration fee for the workshop. Students whose abstracts are accepted for presentation will have their accommodation and meals provided and are eligible to apply for funding to offset their travel costs.
