Sociology of Religion: Foundations and Futures

Sociology of Religion Study Group (Socrel) Annual Conference
www.socrel.org.uk

Tuesday 7 – Thursday 9 July 2015 hosted by Kingston University London 
High Leigh Conference Centre, Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire, UK
http://www.cct.org.uk/high-leigh/introduction 

Keynote Speakers:
Professor Nancy T. Ammerman (Boston University)
Professor James Beckford (University of Warwick)
Professor Grace Davie (University of Exeter)
Professor David Martin (London School of Economics)
Professor Linda Woodhead (Lancaster University)

Since its foundation in 1975, the Sociology of Religion Study Group has become one of the largest in the British Sociological Association (BSA). Its membership includes educators and researchers from across the UK and internationally, and in 2015 the Sociology of Religion Study Group will be celebrating 40 years!

Given this occasion, it is an opportune moment to reflect on religion in society, and religion in sociology. From its foundation, Socrel has foregrounded research on secularisation, gender, spiritualities, embodied and lived accounts, materiality, generational innovations, atheism, social difference, migration, institutions, politicised expressions and methodologies in the study of religion. While this list does not account for all the many ways scholars have been investigating religion in social life – its various forms, intersections and spaces – it does speak to how religions continue to be important subjective and collective experiences that are stable and continuous, resistant and shifting. This conference will bring together scholars who have shaped and are shaping the discipline. It will be an opportunity to pay heed, not only to the Study Group’s and discipline’s accomplishments, but also an opportunity to address questions that are emerging to inform future agendas and areas of concern and study, such as:
 
- What are the key points of continuity and innovation in theorising religion? 
- How are methodologies emerging and informing research on religion? 
- How are new approaches adapting and transforming old practices? 
- What are the key controversies that will occupy sociologists of religion? 
- What are the pedagogical challenges and innovations in teaching the sociology of religion? 

We invite you to celebrate with us by engaging in the conference questions from your particular area of research in the Sociology of Religion. 

————————

HIGHLIGHTS:
-David Martin will be in conversation with Linda Woodhead about his career and recent books, ‘The Education of David Martin: The Making of an Unlikely Sociologist’, and ‘Religion and Power: No Logos without Mythos’.

-Grace Davie will be addressing the religious situation in twenty-first century Britain, drawing from her new book, ‘Religion in Britain: A Persistent Paradox’ (February 2015). This builds on her highly successful ‘Religion in Britain since 1945: Believing without Belonging’, now 20 years in print.

-Nancy Ammerman, James Beckford and Linda Woodhead will be bringing important reflections on the status of religion in sociology, and in society.
