The acronym (ROAR) hides the name “Resistance to Order and Authority in Religion”, which at the same time thematically defines the focus of the conference. Contributions from doctoral as well as advanced masters students from all humanities and social sciences will be welcomed. The conference invites contributions studying the conceptualization, management, and instrumentalization of religious ideas and beliefs with regard to past and contemporary resistance movements. This year's keynote speakers will be dr. Michael Strmiska (SUNY) and one hitherto secret researcher from our beloved institute.

The deadline for accepting English annotations of contributions, not longer than 300 words, is set for 15 March 2020. For more information, please see the attached call for papers or the conference website:

We will be there and we will be looking forward to seeing you!
