CALL FOR PAPERS – Sacred Protest: Religion, Power, and Resistance in an Era of Upheaval

Religion and protest converge and diverge and in pursuit of various ends, making careful analysis of religion and protest, as a prototypical manifestation of transcultural pressures, necessary.

  1. Which religious actors protest, when, why and how?
  2. Which traditional resources are called upon in the service of or resistance to protest?
  3. Where do conditions for inter- and trans-religious cooperation or horizontal solidarity appear and why?
  4. And how are protest and religion to be studied, with which methods, and at what level of involvement?
  5. What are the values, emotions and possibilities for renewal inreligiously motivated or censored protest?

The conference will yield a volume to be published by Equinox publishers, who also publishes ESITIS’s highly-ranked, peer-reviewed journal Interreligious Studies and Intercultural Theology.
