Religion, Science and the Future
A Conference Sponsored by the
Celebrating its 10th Anniversary
14 – 17 January 2016
The University of Florida
Since its founding in 2006 the ISSRNC has promoted critical enquiry into the complex relationships between human beings, the religious dimensions of their cultures, and the environments they inhabit. In 2007, it began to publish its affiliated, quarterly, peer-reviewed Journal for the Study of Religion, Nature and Culture.
As an interdisciplinary society, the ISSRNC is interested in all aspects of the relations between religion, nature and culture. Our conferences and journal are, therefore, replete with contributions grounded in a wide range of the arts, humanities, and sciences. Panels and paper proposals may address any aspect of the religion/nature/culture nexus, and focus on any time frame, space, or place.
Since the main conference theme is “Religion, Science and the Future”, we especially encourage proposals that, whatever else they illuminate, reflect as well on Religion, Science, and the Future. Conference subthemes include: Evolution, Religion and Science; Religion, Violence, and Neuroscience; Religion and Science on Health and Well Being; Religion, Science, and Indigenous Knowledge Systems; Consciousness, Mysticism, & Meditative Practice; The Greening of Religion; Religion and Nature in the Arts; and Ethology, Botany, and Sentience.
