Spirituality Scholars' Network: Symposium
The Spirituality Scholars’ Network (SSN) is an initiative of the INSS which aims to support postgraduate, early career researchers, and scholars in sharing their interests, experiences and projects in the field of spirituality studies. You can connect with us via social media and also attend our research symposium to be held in the summer of 2021.
In conjunction with the University of Huddersfield, we are delighted to host our Second International Symposium aimed at supporting scholars in Spirituality from all disciplines. This symposium offers researchers at all stages the opportunity to submit papers for discussion, feedback and support.
Call for Abstracts
The SSN Symposium encourages the exchange and synthesis of ideas, particularly where they challenge and transcend ‘conventional’ research paradigms. Given the multi-perspectival and cross-disciplinary nature of the study of spirituality, we will be welcoming submissions from colleagues of their own papers on the broad theme of ‘studies in spirituality'. We will be announcing an Abstract Call for the symposium in early 2021 which will offer scholars of the INSS the opportunity to submit a paper for group discussion.
The papers will be either a conceptual discussion paper, which is aimed at participants whose research is at the more conceptual stage and will foster discussions and peer review/feedback on theory, conceptual ideas, project ideas, etc. Alternatively scholars can submit a publication draft paper aimed at participants who are more advanced in their research and would welcome advice, guidance and feedback on projects such as writing an article for publication, writing a monograph / book chapter, completing a research bid, etc.
Do contact Dr Melanie Rogers or Dr Sophie Mackenzie for more information via the Executive Committee links.
