Conference’s committee chairpersons

We are happy to announce that the 4th Israeli Conference for the Study of Contemporary Spiritualities (ICSCS) will be held this year at the University of Haifa (Isreal) on Tuesday, March 20th, 2012.

Please find below the CFP for the conference, and the lecture / Symposium proposal forms. The CFP describes this year’s conference’s central theme:

The therapeutic/psychological discourse within contemporary spiritualities. Nonetheless, this theme does not in any way limit all other research topics, and the conference will be open to all research fields within the study of contemporary spiritualities.

This year ICSCS becomes international, and a new international advisory board was founded alongside the conference’s academic committee.

One of the Keynote lectures will be given by Prof. Paul Heelas on Spiritual Humanism.

Pre-conference and/or post-conference workshops will be offered. More information on these will follow.

We invite researchers as well as graduate students from all disciplines to present papers and symposia in the study of contemporary spiritualities, as detailed below.

Please send proposal forms by 18/11/2011 

to the conference coordinator, Mr. Shai Feraro –
