The 2012 Annual Meeting of the Dutch Association for the Study of Religion (NGG) will be held at the University of Groningen on 25-26 October 2012.

Theme: "Religion and Social Cohesion: Challenges and Perspectives"

The 2012 Annual Meeting of the NGG uses the 100th anniversary of the publication of Émile Durkheim’s Les formes élémentaires de la vie religieuse (1912) as an opportunity to look critically at the concept of 'social cohesion' and the many, often conflicting ways in which scholars, politicians, and others have correlated religion to values of equality, solidarity, democracy, and tolerance (or their opposites) in contemporary Western societies. We want to raise the question whether religion(s) and discourses on religion(s) promote social cohesion or social conflict in multicultural and plural modern societies. The conference will combine sociological, anthropological, and historical approaches to the theme of social cohesion and will provide a contribution to the ongoing debates in Europe regarding the benefits and problems of religious convictions.

The Call for Paper is available now. Please check the NGG website for the Call for Papers and additional information regarding the conference and registration.
