Call for Papers and Panels:

We now invite proposals for individual papers, as well as whole panels, from senior and early-career scholars from Professor to PhD level, as well as colleagues from beyond the academic world who have specialist expertise or unique insights to share. This includes colleagues based in centers of further education, museums and traditional centers of religious learning, among others.

This includes, but is not limited to, the following suggested themes:
We rely on our members and conference participants to help us expand the scope and nuance of our Annual Conference. In light of this, please do feel free to submit panel or paper proposals that are not represented in the above-mentioned themes.
