International Conference:

Religion in Modern Education: Conflict, Policy, and Practice
13-15 April 2023, Australian National University, Canberra, Australia
Abstract Deadline: 14 February 2023

In democratic systems of modern society, education can be understood as a key site for the production of the citizens of the future. The training system is divided in the two types of public and private schools. The non-government organisations are often distinguished within the categories of secular and sacred groups. Meanwhile, education, which can take many forms, is also a key component of the reproduction of religious and spiritual systems.

We would like to invite scholars to consider the immediate and enduring impacts that the value, consideration, accessibility, and format of religious education may have on religious practices, on public spheres of activity, and on the relationship between religion and society.

Through individual presentations and panels, we encourage participants to reflect upon the role of religion in education. This may include the role of religiosity and religious teaching and practices in schools, seminaries, universities and other places of education, in present-day and historical contexts, and in any region of the world.
