The Figuring the Enemy research project is conducting a conference in Socio-Scientific Approaches to Religious Enmity from the 13-15th of June at Trinity College in Melbourne, Australia. This conference will bring together specialists in the social sciences and those studying biblical studies, theology, and religion. Given the high degree of difference between these normally disparate disciplines we are introducing a workshop stream for papers and ideas that scholars and students wish to explore, but may not have the interdisciplinary background to fully develop. It is intended that this stream will allow for wider ranging discussions of topics that can be in earlier stages of development or require methodological expansion.
Expressions of interest for the workshop stream are encouraged to contact firstname.lastname@example.org and close on the 31st of March 2022.
Additionally there are some limited travel bursaries available for Australian and Asia-Pacfiic attendees to enable them to come to Melbourne for the conference. If you wish to apply for one of these please contact the above email.
Finally, due to ongoing uncertainty around borders and vaccination requirements, we have made the decision to hybridise the conference. If the distances to Australia or uncertainty with travel were impeding participation then please get in contact and we can talk through the hybrid options.
