As in previous years, the scientific program will be composed of working sessions (panels and book presentations) and keynote lectures that will focus on the overarching topic Religion and Change.

The call for proposals is open: proponents will be able to submit their panels and AMC sessions until Friday, April 30th, 2021 (23:59, GMT+1) (extended deadline).


As for last year, the only accepted language for panels, papers and AMCs proposals is English.

We remind you that slots equal to hours. If you ask for one slot you are therefore asking for one effective hour of the program. In every hour/slot, the suggested amount of speakers is 3.




Following the format introduced last year, panels can be:

  1. closed (does not accept spare papers: speakers are contacted and selected by the proponent);

  2. open (accepts spare papers sent directly to the panel proponent following panel acceptance; speakers are chosen by the proponent among the proposals received).


Papers are only allowed to be proposed within the open calls published on the website. Spare papers won’t be accepted.


To be accepted, panels must be composed of at least 3 participants, 1 chair and at least 2 speakers. Panel proponents will receive a notification in case of acceptance as well as in case of rejection within two weeks from the submission.


Due to the cancellation of #EuARe2020, it will be possible to re-submit for the next annual conference those panels that were already accepted in 2020 and were listed in the conference program. Proponents will find a dedicated submission form that will be open from Friday, December 4th to Wednesday, December 23rd. Re-submitted panels will be automatically included in the conference program.


Every AMC session corresponds to one slot and one hour. Authors are invited to present their books, finding discussants and speakers that intervene in the one-hour long session and organising the time accordingly. In the allocated time for AMC session, we suggest a maximum of 4 people.


To be accepted, AMC sessions must be composed of at least 3 participants: a chair and at least 2 panellists (speakers/discussants).



While registrations to the conference will open in early 2021, important dates for proposal submissions are as follows:
