Call For Papers

Very sadly, because of the current coronavirus pandemic we have had to take the decision to cancel the CenSAMM 2020 annual conference.

It was clear that the event could not go ahead as we planned with the travel restrictions internationally and we would not want to risk the health of our participants.

We were grateful for some very good submissions, and we were looking forward to what was shaping up to be an excellent meeting. We will of course plan to hold the conference in 2021, and we hope that all those who have submitted papers will do so again next year.



The Centre for the Critical Study of Apocalyptic and Millenarian Movements (CenSAMM) 2020 conference will be held at the University of Bedfordshire UK (Bedford Campus) 29-30 June 2020.

The theme of the conference is: The Study of Apocalyptic and Millenarian Movements: Critical and Interdisciplinary Approaches.

The aim of the conference is to facilitate critical and interdisciplinary discussion of apocalypticism, millenarianism and associated movements across time, place, and culture. The interdisciplinary scope is broadly understood to include methodologies, comparative approaches, and showcasing of research more specific to individual fields of expertise.

Speakers include:
Prof. Catherine Wessinger (Loyola University, New Orleans)
Prof. Douglas Davies (Durham University, UK)
Prof. Linda Woodhead (Lancaster University, UK)

We invite individual paper proposals from scholars at all stages of their career, including postgraduates, and we welcome suggestions for group panels.

Please submit proposals to the Academic Directors Prof James Crossley (St Mary’s University, Twickenham) and Dr Alastair Lockhart (University of Cambridge) at conference@censamm.org. Submissions for papers should include a 300-word abstract and short CV.

Deadline for proposals: 31 March 2020.
