The 8th international conference for postgraduate students in Religious Studies will be an opportunity to deepen the notion of public space. This notion has been used in quite a diverse way since J. Habermas defined it, included in Religious Studies (see C. Taylor, J. Casanova for example).

This conference is open to all students and young researchers (master’s, PhD and post doctorate), in a multidisciplinary perspective (law, economics, history, geography, sociology, anthropology, urbanism, political science, literature ...). As an indication, but not a limitation, the proposals may be related to the following themes:

- Law and religion

- Religion, political power, legal sphere

- Religion and territories

- Religion and transformation of society

- Religion, Feminist Studies and Gender Issues

- Religion, immigration and ethnicity

- Religious diversity and secularism

- Faith and transformation of the community

- Spiritual experiences

- Believing without belonging;

- Christianity and liberation

- ...

The conference will be held on April 25 and 26, 2019 at the Center for Contemporary Religious Studies at the Université de Sherbrooke (Main Campus), QC, Canada.

Proposals for papers (English or French) must be submitted electronically to arctus@usherbrooke.ca  (Arctus : Student Association for the Study of Contemporary Religious and Theology) no later than Monday, February 11, 2019.
