On behalf of Dr. James Linville of the University of Lethbridge, I am pleased to announce a call for student papers for the 4th Annual Research in Religious Studies Conference at the University of Lethbridge in Lethbridge, Alberta, Saturday 29 April – Sunday 30 April 2006. This is a special conference that their Department of Religious Studies holds especially for undergraduate and graduate students.
Papers from every discipline within the academic fields of the humanities and social sciences are welcome. The call for papers is posted online at the Lethbridge Religious Studies Department website or may be downloaded here.
From talking to Jim, he hopes that this conference will become a major event for Religious Studies students in the western provinces and neighbouring states.
Jim also noted that the University of Lethbridge has been selected to host the 2007 Pacific Northwest Regional meeting of the American Academy of Religion, Society of Biblical Literature and American School of Oriental Research. In light of this, the 2007 student’s conference will likely be scheduled just prior to this meeting, so contributors can attend both.
I think this student conference is a great idea and I am hoping to go down in April with some Taylor students in tow. Thanks for organizing this, Jim.
