Call For Papers

Cherry Hill Seminary and the University of South Carolina are proud to jointly sponsor a symposium on April 13, 2013, on the USC campus in Columbia, South Carolina, titled Sacred Lands and Spiritual Landscapes: Cosmography of the Pagan Soul.

Keynote Speaker: Ronald Hutton

We welcome papers that explore the following questions:

In today's post-modern, urbanized world, where everything is a commodity, how and where do Pagans find their sacred places?

How should we protect and maintain these sites?

In colonized worlds, how do we avoid the appropriation of these lands?

If Goddess is immanent in nature, what makes some places more sacred than others?

How is our spirituality shaped by the land and our relationship with the land shaped by our spirituality?

Proposals of up to 1000 words are due by January 1, 2013, submitted using this form.
