“Religion in World History”
23 March 2019
Boston College High School
150 Morrissey Boulevard
NERWHA welcomes proposals from teachers, research scholars, and students on any aspect
relating to its theme “Religion in World History.” Proposals may be for an entire panel, a round
table, a single paper, a workshop, a poster, or any other form of academic presentation. All
proposals should address religion or religious phenomena from a world history perspective.
Each panel proposal should contain a list of the participants (including each participant’s e-mail
address), a one-page CV of each participant, and an abstract of no more than 300 words for each
proposed paper. All items should be contained within a single MS Word document. No panel
may contain more than 3 presenters, plus a chair and, if desired, a commentator. Each paper must
extend for no more than 20 minutes, and commentary should be no longer than ten minutes.
Panel sessions will last 90 minutes.
Round-table proposals should contain a list of participants, a one-page CV of each participant
(including each participant’s e-mail address), and a single abstract of no more than 500 words
that outlines the general theme and direction of the round table. All items should be contained
within a single MS Word document. No round table should include more than five participants,
and each will be limited to an initial ten-minute comment. Round tables will last 90 minutes.
It is important to allow sufficient time for discussion in all paper-panel and round-table sessions.
For this reason, time limits must be strictly maintained.
Proposals for single papers, workshops, and posters should be accompanied by a one-page CV
of the presenter (including an email address) and an abstract of no more than 300 words. Papers
may extend for no more than 20 minutes, and a workshop will last no more than 90 minutes.
Workshops may have multiple leaders; if so, a CV of each is required. All items must be
contained within a single MS Word document.
Address all proposals and inquiries to:
A. J. Andrea email@example.com
All proposals are due no later than 15 February 2019.
Decisions regarding acceptance will be made on a rolling basis.
