CfP: Religious Heritage in a Diverse Europe

CfP: Religious Heritage in a Diverse Europe: New Directions in Practice, Policy & Scholarship

19-21 June 2019, Groningen

This conference will bring into conversation scholars, museum curators, heritage professionals, visual artists, as well as leaders of religious and secular organizations. Among the scholarly disciplines that we hope will contribute is intellectual history. Heritage is new area of promising research in religious-intellectual history. What better place to cogitate the postsecular than in the increasingly empty churches of Europe? What goes on, as religious spaces become spaces of heritage? How does the pluralization of the religious landscape pose new questions to heritage and the heritage discourse? If you are interested in these questions, please propose a paper or panel to our upcoming conference. There will also be a university summer school from June 17-21 for interested MA and PhD students. For more information about either, please contact Todd Weir ( or go the conference website listed above.

Organized by: University of Groningen, Stichting Oude Groninger Kerken (Groningen Historic Churches Foundation), Museum Catharijneconvent, Future for Religious Heritage, Jewish Cultural Quarter.

Submissions due: 1 December 2018.
