An International Conference at the University of St. Michael’s College, Toronto, Canada

We are seeking proposals for papers and poster sessions that highlight the various ways that religious traditions and religiously-inspired movements have served and continue to serve as forces for social innovation. We are seeking proposals from scholars, practitioners, activists and leaders of Non-Governmental Organizations and other social initiatives. We welcome any proposal exploring the contribution of religiously-affiliated or religiously-inspired organizations, movements or initiatives in any area of social innovation.

The full CFP, including specifications for proposals, is available here:

Because this Call is directed to different kinds of participants, who are bound by different schedules, we will be accepting proposals for paper and poster sessions in two rounds.

*To be considered in the first round of adjudication, proposals must be submitted no later than 15 February 2013.
