International Society for the Study of Reformed Communities
2009 ISSRC Conference
"Reformed Communities on Calvin's 500th Birthday "
The ISSRC is an association of international scholars from a variety of academic disciplines who are actively engaged in research on the social, cultural, political and institutional life of communities associated with the Reformed tradition worldwide. The ISSRC promotes research on Reformed communities and their members by sponsoring a triennial conference and by helping to publish its proceedings.
The ISSRC conference is designed to be one continuous conversation. Each paper will be provided to all other participants one month before the conference, to allow each participant to read all of the papers prior to the start of the event. At the conference, we will have only one session scheduled at each time period, so that all participants may join in the same discussion.
This sixth conference will be held at the International Baptist Theological Seminary, where we will stay and hold all meetings. Some tours of Prague that integrate Reformed history in the area will be included in the event schedule.
Send an abstract of your paper proposal either by regular mail or as an email attachment to: Beau Weston (firstname.lastname@example.org), Department of Sociology, Centre College, Danville, KY 40422. The abstract should be two to three paragraphs in length indicating: 1) the particular problem(s) or questions which the paper seeks to analyze; 2) why the particular problem(s) or questions are important to examine; 3) how you anticipate trying to address or answer the problems or questions raised, that is, the kind of data to be employed or the type of analysis to be done. Finally, be certain that your full contact information is included on the abstract itself.
