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!
This is the latest in a series of one day conferences, which allow students across the diverse disciplines in New College to showcase their work for their peers.
The Spring 2011 event takes place on April 14th, in Martin Hall 10am – 3:45pm, New College, Mound Place, Edinburgh.
