NISE 2020 Announcement

We are extending the submission deadline by April 15th

South Korea has seen in the last few weeks a steady decrease in new coronavirus cases that should mean that the country has passed the peak’ of the outbreak. We expect that everything will become normal before summer. However, we understand that many of our colleagues may still be concerned about the outbreak and need more time to decide about their participation in the NISE 2020 Conference. Therefore, we have now extended the abstract submission deadline by April 15th and the early-bird and regular registration deadlines by May 31st and June 15th, respectively.

We continue to closely monitor the developments related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the impact it will have on the upcoming NISE conference at Seoul, South Korea in August 10-12. As of this writing, the 2nd NISE conference is planned to take place as scheduled in Seoul, South Korea, August 10-12, 2020. As new information becomes available, or if our meeting plans change, we will inform you via email, social media, and on the NISE conference website. The registration fee will be fully refunded if the NISE 2020 Conference is cancelled due to the coronavirus as per AIS cancellation and refund policy. We appreciate your understanding and support. Should you have questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON CLIMATE CHANGE - THE SPECTER OF CLIMATE CHAOS: RELIGION, SCIENCE, POLITICS

What is the place of spirituality today in the face of climatic and environmental instability? In the light of contemporary science and public policy, is the function of religion to ameliorate, or exacerbate, the current crisis of climate disruption? How might scholarly fields such as climate science, religious studies, and political theory contribute to a new understanding of the positive role various faith communities might play in the current climate debate – as well as the negative role such communities might play in their resistance to climate science and political action based on the strictures of their ancient traditions? In sum, this conference will ask: What new forms of social and political action might be possible by faith communities’ efforts to address constructively catastrophic climate disorder, both within their own communities and across other communities?
