About the next ISSR Conference

Dear members of the ISSR

We have important news. While we initially planned to have our conference 2019 in Warsaw at UKSW, this has finally not been possible. The next ISSR conference will be held in Barcelona, Spain, 9-12 July, 2019 under the title “The Politics of Religion and Spirituality”. 
The chairperson of the local committee is Prof. Mar Griera whom we thank for taking on the
organization at such short notice.

More practical information will follow soon.
