NERWHA welcomes proposals from teachers, research scholars, and students on any aspect relating to its theme “Religion in World History.” Proposals may be for an entire panel, a round table, a single paper, a workshop, a poster, or any other form of academic presentation. All proposals should address religion or religious phenomena from a world history perspective. 

Each panel proposal should contain a list of the participants (including each participant’s e-mail address), a one-page CV of each participant, and an abstract of no more than 300 words for each proposed paper. All items should be contained within a single MS Word document.No panel may contain more than 3 presenters, plus a chair and, if desired, a commentator. Each paper must extend for no more than 20 minutes, and commentary should be no longer than ten minutes. Panel sessions will last 90 minutes. 

Round-table proposals should contain a list of participants, a one-page CV of each participant (including each participant’s e-mail address), and a single abstract of no more than 500 words that outlines the general theme and direction of the round table. All items should be contained within a single MS Word document. No round table should include more than five participants, and each will be limited to an initial ten-minute comment. Round tables will last 90 minutes. 

It is important to allow sufficient time for discussion in all paper-panel and round-table sessions. For this reason, time limits must be strictly maintained. 

Proposals for single papers, workshops, and posters should be accompanied by a one-page CV of the presenter (including an email address) and an abstract of no more than 300 words. Papers may extend for no more than 20 minutes, and a workshop will last no more than 90 minutes. Workshops may have multiple leaders; if so, a CV of each is required. All items must be contained within a single MS Word document.

 

Address all proposals and inquiries to A.J Andrea aandrea@uvm.edu. All proposals are due no later than 15 February 2019. Decisions regarding acceptance will be made on a rolling basis. Look for symposium updates at <nerwha.org>
