Dear members of the ISSR,

Conference Program (draft)

The pre-program of the conference is now available. Please check that your name, details, sessions and paper etc. are correct. Send any correction or amendment to the program chair, Ruth Flanagan at , not later than 20 March 2023.

The final version will be posted on the website after this date.

Note that as much as possible, we do not intend to make any change of date and time for any session or paper: we will only correct names, emails or affiliations. Indeed, it is impossible to change the time slot of one session without affecting the conference programme as a whole and hence generating several days of additional work.

Information on hotels and accommodation in Taipei will be soon posted on the ISSR website. Visit the ISSR conference page.

New researchers’ forum

The new online forum for new researchers is open! In anticipation of the Taipei Congress (4-7 July), you can inform the research community about your recent work, upcoming events or start a discussion on research questions that interest you. This will help to strengthen the ties of sociologist of religion worldwide.
