NCRSA 2006:

Call for Papers

Friends and Colleagues,

As Program Chair of the 2006 annual conference of the North Carolina Religious Studies Association, it is my pleasure to announce that the meeting will be held this year on Friday, October 6 on the campus of UNC Charlotte. The event will be hosted by the UNC Charlotte Department of Religious Studies.

Proposals for or abstracts of papers, completed papers, or topics for panel discussion on any area in the academic study of religion--and of philosophy as it pertains to religion --are welcome. Presentation time for papers must not exceed twenty minutes in order to allow time for questions and discussion. Send proposals, abstracts, papers and topics by JUNE 30, 2006, to me at

Submission via e-mail attachment, preferably in Microsoft Word, is strongly encouraged. If you choose to submit a paper or proposal by regular mail (Wingate University, Box 3075, Wingate, NC 28174), I would appreciate an e-mail to let me know you have done so.

This year the Association will be sponsoring students, undergraduate and/or graduate, who write the best papers. Recipients will receive a stipend ($50-75 depending on funds and number of submissions) and will be recognized at the Conference. To be eligible, students must submit the entire paper (c. 10 double spaced pages) by June 30. The submission must also be accompanied by a brief supporting letter from a faculty sponsor.

I look forward to seeing you in Charlotte for a stimulating and rewarding exchange of ideas.

Mark Roncace
