Call for complete session proposal

While the sessions proposed by the conference organisers focus on the western European and Christian traditions we welcome complete session proposals on related themes covering non-Western and non-Christian traditions.

The aim of the conference is not only to study the Fiertel in its local context, but also to trace traditions and rituals which are cross-confessional and transcultural. We hope that this reflection and dialogue will help us to understand the origins of the Fiertel, as a ritual and spiritual quest outdating Christianity.

Submission deadline extended until the 10th of January 2018.

Proposal should include:

  • A session title of max. 10 words
  • A session proposal of max. 350 words
  • 3 individual paper proposals consisting out of a title of max. 10 words and an abstract of max. 350 words each.
  • A CV of max. 1000 words for each: the session organizer and the session participants. The CV should include information on the current affiliation and full contact details.

All documents have to be merged into 1 PDF file.

Proposals should be sent to papers@wws2018.com

The scientific committee will give up to 6 conference participation grants for out-standing early-carreer researchers. See registration page for more information.
