Call for Papers: Practices of Justice in a Multi-faith Context

June 3, 2019

The Centre for Interfaith Studies at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David is a forum that brings together academics and religious leaders to engage in critical reflection on interfaith studies and interfaith work. Following on from the successful Third Annual Lampeter Interfaith Symposium in 2018, we are happy to announce that the theme for the July 4-5, 2019 conference will be: “Practicing what is Preached: Practices of Justice in a Multi-faith Context.” We are currently seeking applications to speak at this conference. Please contact [email protected] with a short outline of your proposed paper. Travel and accommodation expenses can be covered.

Religious and spiritual commitments often drive human beings to engage in social action, promote justice, to be politically engaged, and to care for animals and the environment. In this conference we aim to address questions such as: What from within religious traditions motivates people to engage in these activities? In what ways are such commitments and responsibilities concretely expressed in practice? In what ways do faith communities seek to work together on matters of common interest?
