Call for papers

Although religion in all its various forms is a universally recognised and appreciated phenomenon, academic reflection on the topic is far from attaining general recognition. The organisers of the annual conference "Religion: research areas, methods and perspectives" aim to show the importance of religious studies at an individual, social and cultural level. We are inviting papers presenting both theoretical findings and the results of empirical research. We hope that the Third Krakow Symposium will provide a meeting point for researchers tackling religious phenomena from various perspectives – historical, sociological, psychological, anthropological and philosophical.

Thematic sessions: 

  • Epigenetic, Neurocognitive and Historical Aspects of Religious Rituals and Visions
  • Religion and Language
  • Theism, Atheism, Scepticism, Pluralism – Dilemmas of Philosophy of Religion
  • Many Aspects of Research on Myth
  • Global Christianity: Changes and Challenges
  • Religions in the Middle East: Confrontation and Cooperation
  • Many Social Dimensions of Religion. Individual – Community – Institution
  • Psychology of Religion
  • Religious Studies and religions of Asia – research perspectives 

Also session in Polish:

  • Kościoły i wyznania w Polsce- historia i współczesność
  • Religia i media
  • Religia i prawo
