Social Science History Association 2018 Annual Conference
Phoenix, Arizona, November 8-11

SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 16, 2018
The Religion Network of the Social Science History Association invites proposals for papers, panels, and book sessions for the 43rd annual meeting of the Social Science History Association in Phoenix, Arizona, November 8-11, 2018. We are also looking for volunteers to serve as panel chairs and discussants. The SSHA is the leading interdisciplinary association for historical research in the US, providing a stimulating venue for explorations of how social processes unfold over time. The Religion Network serves as the home within the organization for scholars interested in religious history, religious mobilization, religious change, and religion’s effect on social and political processes. Our network is interdisciplinary and cross-national in scope, and embraces all scholarship that examines how religion intersects with other social processes in historical perspective. We encourage the participation of graduate students and recent PhDs as well as more established scholars from a wide range of disciplines and departments. Graduate students are eligible to apply for financial support to attend the annual meeting. Further details about the association, the 2018 annual meeting, and the call for proposals are available on the SSHA website: http://www.ssha.org.
We welcome and encourage papers and panel proposals on a wide array of issues related to the historical study of religion and society. While complete panel proposals (consisting of 4-5 individual papers, a chair, and a discussant) are preferred, we also seek out high-quality individual paper submissions. Panels and papers may address the topics below, or any other relevant and related topic examining religion in a historical context:
Religion across Boundaries
Religion and Populism
Religion and Gender
Religion and Contemporary Geopolitics
Religion and State Formation
Secularizations, Secularisms, Secularities
Religion and Law
Religion and the Arts
Religion and Social Movements
Religion and Science
Religion and Field Theory
Please use the SSHA’s web conference management system to submit your papers and panel proposals. Paper title, brief abstract, and contact information should be submitted at http://prd.sshaconference.org/. Please do not hesitate to contact the Religion Network representatives with any questions, comments, or for help with submissions.
Thank you, and we look forward to a stimulating set of panels at this year’s SSHA meeting.
