August 1-3, 2018 in Oslo, Norway.
Growing religious diversity characterizes most countries across the world, often linked to the globalization of migration, politics, economies, and the media. The diversity offers new challenges of managing religion in countries that previously were more religiously homogenous.
The 24th Nordic Conference for Sociology of Religion seeks a more thorough understanding, theoretically as well as empirically, of religion, politics, and boundaries. While sociologists often have attempted to understand these developments in terms of single dimension theories, we would like to find out how this complexity is part of processes of change and continuity in contemporary society.
We invite papers that focus on these and other topics in the sociology of religion.
- Paper proposals are due on April 6. 2018
- Decision Notification: April 30. 2018
- Registration open: April 30. 2018
- Registration closes: June 15. 2018
