Spirituality, Critical Reflection and Professional Practice in an Uncertain World

Over the past three years, the number of email, text and other messages sent around the world that have included a sentence such as ‘I hope you are well in these uncertain times’ has been quite remarkable. Underpinned by the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, humanitarian crises caused by war and natural disasters, concerns about climate change, and the consequences of increasingly polarised and divisive politics, ‘uncertainty’ seems to be a key characteristic of our times. This conference will provide a space in which to consider the place of spirituality in such circumstances, together with the methodologies and methods best suited to its study, and the implications that spirituality studies may have for professional practices and personal development in uncertain times. 

The conference will take place  in Ireland, at the Waterford campus (on the Cork Road) of the newly created South East Technological University (SETU). It will be the first conference of the International Network for the Study of Spirituality to be held outside the UK. SETU is the only third level institution in Ireland to have designated postgraduate studies in spirituality and a spirituality research unit (SpirSoP).

Conference abstracts are due by November 30th. See the Conference-2023 pages on the INSS website for further details on the conference and its theme of Spirituality, Critical Reflection and Professional Practice in an Uncertain World.
