Call for Papers Reformation Panel at EuARe 2020

Posted: 3 October 2019

To overview

New Research on the Religious Reformations in the Long Sixteenth Century is the titel of the RefoRC panel at the European Academy of Religion, June 22-25, 2020. You are welcome to submit your paper proposal.

Recent research on the ‘Global Reformation’ has opened important new paths in the knowledge of this well-researched subject: however, in some cases, current scholarship on the Reformation is still struggling to become transnational (Benedict, 2018).
Indeed, crossing the borders of disciplines is no easier than crossing linguistic or national borders in Reformation studies: nevertheless, a broader view on the historical watershed that the early Reformation represented is key to a deeper and better understanding of its meaning and implications for the past, the present, and the future.


The panel organisers encourage submissions by doctoral students or early-career scholars who will have obtained their Ph.D. no earlier than on 1 January 2016. Five paper proposals on any subject connected to the Reformations of the long sixteenth century, such as (but not limited to) history, theology, the arts, print culture, and material culture will be selected for presentation in the panel. Priority will be given to fresh, innovative research and in particular to proposals which will demonstrate a clear interest in transnationality and interdisciplinarity.


This panel is co-organised and co-funded by the Foundation for Religious Studies “John XXIII” (Fscire) and the RefoRC Consortium. All panelists will be waivered the EuARe subscription fee. Subject to funding availability, panelists will be reimbursed a part of their travel and accommodation expenses.



Herman J. Selderhuis (Theological University of Apeldoorn / President of the European Academy of Religion / President of the Board of RefoRC)



The deadline for paper submission is Tuesday, December 31st (23.59, GMT +1).
