The Science, Religion, and Culture Program at Harvard Divinity School will hold the 6th annual "Ways of Knowing: Graduate Conference on Religion" October 26-28, 2017, on the campus of Harvard Divinity School in Cambridge, MA. 

Inaugurated in 2012, Ways of Knowing (WOK) is a multi-day event made up of thematic panels that cross religious traditions, academic disciplines, and intellectual and theological commitments. In addition, the conference features special panels on professionalization, addressing both academic and non-academic careers, and a keynote address. The conference aims at promoting lively interdisciplinary discussion of prevailing assumptions (both within and outside the academy) about the differentiation, organization, authorization, and reproduction of various modes of knowing and doing religion.

Last year, 128 students and early career scholars representing over 60 graduate programs worldwide gathered to present their research. Following the success of our previous conferences, we invite graduate students and early career scholars to submit paper proposals from of a variety of theoretical, methodological, and disciplinary perspectives.
