38th annual Conference in Implicit Religion

Dear Colleague,

The 38th annual Conference in Implicit Religion (secular faith(s)) will be held at Denton Hall, Ilkley, West Yorkshire, UK from 6 pm Friday May 8th to 2 pm Sunday May 10th, 2015.

The entire event takes place in the Hall, making it truly a confer-ence. The Conference Papers are therefore distributed electronically in advance (during April), and then “spoken to” for five minutes to launch their discussion. This collegiality is furthered by the limitation on accommodation (24 single/double bedrooms. The total fee is £30 deposit, plus £125 conference (Papers, Board and Accommodation, all included).

This may be the last time we hold the event at this much valued venue, overlooking the Yorkshire Moors. In future it may be held at the more commodious Sarum College in the Cathedral Close at Salisbury. However, we anticipate this year having space for one or two more Papers and three or four more Participants.

If you would like to join us this year, please say so soon. If you would like to offer a Paper please send a Title and Abstract.
