CfP: Religion in the Anthropocene: Challenges, Idolatries, Transformations

Fifth International Conference of the European Forum for the Study of Religion and Environment, 14–17 May 2015.

The Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society is collaborating with the European Forum for the Study of Religion and the Environment (EFSRE) to bring you a conference on “Religion in the Anthropocene.”

Location: LMU Main Building, Geschwister-Scholl-Platz 1, 80539 Munich

Conveners: Markus Vogt (LMU Munich), Celia Deane-Drummond (University of Notre Dame), Sigurd Bergmann (Norwegian University of Science and Technology), Claudia R. Binder (LMU Munich), and Dieter Gerten (Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research)

This fifth EFSRE conference model is a forum (with plenary keynotes and special sessions) for an interdisciplinary dialogue on the Anthropocene. Discussions will center around the many possible roles of religion and beliefs in this human-dominated era and its foreseeable future. Scholarly contributions are invited on the manifold challenges that the Anthropocene poses to religions, and on how religion could act as a “planetary opportunity” and driving force to stay within planetary boundaries.

We invite contributions from scholars based anywhere in the world and in all fields that address the theme of the conference. Submissions are welcome untill 15 February 2015. Decisions will be shared after 1 March 2015. Please submit your abstract, no more than 200 words, together with a brief (one-page) CV by email.
