Call For Papers

Second Undergraduate Conference on Religion and Culture

Syracuse University | March 28, 2015 | Syracuse, NY

The Department of Religion at Syracuse University will host its second annual “Undergraduate Conference on Religion and Culture” on Saturday, March 28, 2015. The goals of the conference are to recognize and encourage outstanding undergraduate work, and to provide undergraduate students with an opportunity to contribute to a broader academic conversation.

At this event on the Syracuse University campus, students will have the opportunity in 20 minutes to present their research and papers on panels with on-site feedback by faculty and graduate student responders, as well by students from other colleges and universities. Special sessions will engage undergraduates with tips on applying to graduate school and reflect the experiences of graduate students. And they will have the opportunity to meet and connect with other critical-thinking students of religion in the Central New York region.

We invite faculty to encourage their undergraduate students to apply. We welcome undergraduate student term papers, selections from honors and senior theses, creative projects, and works in progress. Papers should address an academic topic in religious studies, theology, philosophy of religion, or religion and culture. Travel stipends are available.

To apply, students should email an abstract of no more than 350 words to: by Sunday, February 15th.

Include your name, email address, school affiliation, and the name of your faculty sponsor.

Students must ask a faculty sponsor to send us a brief, informal statement with your name, the sponsor’s recommendation of your paper presentation, and your relationship to the sponsor (current or former student, advisee, etc.). Faculty sponsor statements are also due by Sunday, February 15th and may be emailed to:

Have fun and be creative! We hope to see you here on March 28th. For information about the application, travel stipend, dates, or questions generally, email:
