March 5-8, 2018, Bologna (Italy)

After the founding “Ex Nihilo Zero Conference” held in Bologna, last June 18-22, 2017, the European Academy of Religion organizes its first Annual Conference to be held in Bologna from Monday 5th to Thursday 8th March, 2018.

The European Academy of Religion (EuARe) is a research initiative launched under the High Patronage of the European Parliament which offers an exchange platform to academies and scientific societies, associations, research centres and institutions, university labs, clusters and departments, journals, publishers, the media and scholars in Europe and the surrounding regions.

Since, religion plays a central role in our world, shared knowledge and academic reflection can stimulate a peaceful coexistence and avoid religious illiteracy, both in the academic world and in Europe as a whole.

The program of the conference will be composed by plenary ( lectiones magistrales and roundtables) and working sessions (panels and papers).

Confirmed key-note speakers include: Andres Winroth (Yale University); Philip Reynolds (Emory University); Risto Saarinen (University of Helsinki); Else Marie Wiberg-Pedersen (Aarhus University); Mona Siddiqui (University of Edinburgh); John Zizioulas (Thessaloniki University, and Academy of Athens); Christoph Markschies (Humboldt-Universität Berlin) and many others.

Three roundtables will be convened on the topic of “Change and Religion in Europe”, and on the figures of Aristotle and Moses.
