Call for Proposals

This Consultation is devoted to the analysis of religion in Europe or related to Europe. We welcome papers on any religion in any historical period and encourage interdisciplinary, interreligious, and comparative approaches. This year, we especially seek proposals related to the following themes:

  • Europe’s Islamic heritage and/or future
  • Dominant/alternative narratives of Europe’s religious history
  • Religious toleration and its limits
  • The instrumentalization of religion
  • The Christian nation, Christian values, Christian culture — rhetoric and reality
  • Remembering the Reformation

We welcome proposals that do not correspond to these themes, as well as proposals for complete sessions related to Europe in some fashion. Successful proposals will be considered for publication in the Journal of Religion in Europe.


This Consultation is designed to serve as a forum for the examination of religious issues related to the social, cultural, and political development of Europe. Its guiding principles include a commitment to scholarly dialogue across disciplines, a comparative spirit sensitive to Europe’s religious diversity, and a transhistorical appreciation of the full trajectory of the European experience.

Anonymity of Review Process

Proposals are anonymous to Chairs and Steering Committee Members during review, but visible to Chairs prior to final acceptance or rejection.
