CALL FOR PAPERS Regulating Religion: Normativity and Change at the Intersection of Law & Religion 14 - 15 December 2015 Faculty of Law National University of Singapore
Submission Deadline: 31 May 2015
In most eras and clutures, law and religion relate dialectically. Every major religious tradition strives to come to terms with law by striking a balance between the worldly and the spiritual, the structural and the mystical, the rational and the sacred. Every major legal tradition struggles to align its formal structures and processes with the beliefs and values of its people. Thus, while law and religion can be conceptualized as distinct spheres of human life, they do not exist independently but are constantly interacting with and influencing each other.

This workshop will engage emerging scholarship on the influence of religion on legal systems, both historically and currently, and vice versa. Regulation is our key focus. In simplest terms, we will consider how law regulates religion, and how religion responds to such regulations. The more complex question we ask is how the normativity becomes diversified and drives the regulatory dialectics between law and religion after the institutional development of the latter two

Submission:

Please email them to regulatingreligion@gmail.com by 31 May 2015.
