The Leiden University Centre for the Study of Religion (LUCSoR), the Dutch Association for the Study of Religion (NGG), The Netherlands School for Advanced Studies in Theology and Religion (NOSTER) in cooperation with the University of Erfurt Research Centre “Dynamics of Jewish Ritual Practices in Pluralistic Contexts from Antiquity to the Present” are pleased to announce their joint conference on Interpreting Rituals: Historiographical Perspectives and Pluralistic Contexts, to be held on October 29-31, 2018 at Leiden University. More information and the Call for Papers can be found in the attached document.
The NOSTER Grand Course will be connected to this conference. It will start on Monday 29 October with a master class with prof. Jörg Rüpke (University of Erfurt). The topic of the master class is prof. Rüpke’s new book Pantheon. A New History of Roman Religion (Princeton University Press 2018). Participants in the Grand Course will then participate in the conference itself. As soon as the program of the Grand Course and all the practicalities have been worked out, this will be announced on the website and NOSTER’s junior members will receive a notification. For now, however, it is important to note that PhD candidates and ReMA students who register for the Grand Course will participate in the conference for free or at least against a reduced price. Again, the specific details will be announced later.
