1st Conference of the Asociación Española de Historia Religiosa Contemporánea
While the role of the Catholic Church under the Spanish Civil War (1936–1939) and the Dictatorship (1939-1975) remain one of the most contested aspects in public and academic debates, in recent years, the study of religious history has become an increasingly respected as an expanding field of research in Spanish historiography.
The present conference aims to celebrate and continue these efforts. To this end, the AEHRC would like to bring together scholars interested in advancing the state of the art in our field by a) critically evaluating the successes and limitations of current and new perspectives in the study of contemporary religious history; b) and, in particular, by reassessing the processes of secularization and religious reconfiguration that have shaped the Spanish and Hispanic cases, although we are, of course, equally interested in transnational and global studies, as well studies specific to other nations and regions.
The conference will be divided into four different themes:
1-Femininities and masculinities
2- Identities in movement
3- Religions in conflict and dialogue
4- Material-immaterial religious cultures
Please see the full call for papers in the link below, the deadline for submission of abstracts is the 1st of June. We are looking forward to receiving your contributions. See you in Zaragoza!
