An announcement from IACSR:
Call for Proposals for Presentations at the 2010 meeting of the International Association for the Cognitive Science of Religion (IACSR) in conjunction with the XXth Quinquennial World Congress of the International Association of the History of Religions (IAHR)
August 15-21, 2010 in Toronto
The IACSR, which seeks to advance the naturalistic study of religion, invites interested scholars to submit proposals for presentations (lasting no more than 25 minutes) for possible inclusion on the program at its upcoming meeting for 2010 in Toronto. Submissions are welcome on any topic in the cognitive science of religion. The IACSR recognizes that the cognitive sciences encompass a wide array of disciplines and methods, including, among others, experimental research in psychology and neuroscience, computational modeling, ethnographic, historical, archaeological, and comparative studies of religious cognition, and the survey techniques of the social sciences. Presentations advancing new cognitive theories of diverse religious phenomena are also welcome.
Proposals should consist of two pages. The cover page should include the following items ONLY:
1. presentation title
2. word count of the proposal
3. all authors’ names
4. all authors’ email addresses (papers with multiple authors should explicitly indicate which of the addresses should serve as the one to which all subsequent communications about this submission should be sent)
On a subsequent page, the substantive section of the proposal should, again, include the title of the presentation, should not exceed 500 words, and should not contain either footnotes or endnotes or the author’s name(s). The author’s name(s) should only appear on the cover page.
Proposals should be attached as an MS Word file in emails with “IACSR submission” in their subject lines to be sent to Armin W. Geertz at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submission is February 15, 2010.
