New College Postgraduate Conference – 14 April 2011, Edinburgh

Another plug for a paper of mine… and a thoroughly interesting day. We all had to make it through a selection panel to present at this conference, and I am sure we’d appreciate your support. My paper will be a shortened version of an article I am having published next month in the International Journal for the Study of New Religions. Entitled “Consciousness Raising: The Critique, Agenda and Inherent Precariousness of Contemporary Anglophone Atheism”, it shall be a condensed, revised and updated amalgamation of many of the posts I have already made on this site. As with my previous post regarding a presentation, I shall endeavour to make this available here, however I am very busy with interview transcription at the moment, so it might take a while!
