CfP: Religion, social commitment, and female agency. Encounters with subalternity and resilience

Call for papers, deadline 1 December 2019

CCSCE, The Network on Christian Churches, Culture and Society (www.ccsce.eu), in cooperation with KADOC-KU Leuven, is organizing an international conference: Religion, social commitment, and female agency – Encounters with subalternity and resilience (Leuven, 6-7 July 2020). This conference wishes to foster the historical debate on nineteenth- and twentieth-century religiously inspired female agency in Europe within the specific yet diverse context of social commitment to subaltern groups. The focus will be on care provisions for vulnerable, marginalised, and indigent people (prostitutes, ‘fallen’ women and girls, migrants, indigent and elderly people, the mentally ill…), initiated and managed by Christian (lay or clerically organised congregations, sisterhoods, deaconesses…), Jewish, and Muslim women.
