Canadian National Pagan Conference, 2015

 Call for Academic Papers

The Gaia Gathering / CNPC is Canada’s foremost academic and cultural conference for the study of modern Paganism and associated new religious movements. Since 2004, the Gathering has brought together the best Canadian scholars in the field with well-known artists, writers, community organizers, and clergy in the neo-pagan community. Each year the conference takes place over the Victoria Day long weekend in a different Canadian city. Previous host cities have included Edmonton, Halifax, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Vancouver, Montreal, Gatineau, and Toronto.

This year we celebrate the tenth anniversary of the conference, by returning to the city where it began: Edmonton, Alberta. The conference will take place at the Ramada Edmonton Hotel and Conference Centre (11834 Kingsway NW), from May 15th to 18th, 2015. In addition to the academic presentations, the conference features workshops, panel discussions, and evening entertainment throughout the weekend.

Academic Paper Submission Criteria

We invite papers and proposals for our academic stream from all fields within the social sciences, arts, and humanities, which are relevant to the academic study of contemporary Paganism, New Religious Movements and related interests. We also welcome proposals from independent researchers, i.e. individuals not directly affiliated with a college, university, or similar institution.

Submissions may be sent via mail or e-mail and must be no more than one page. They must include a publication-ready, titled abstract of 150-200 words. The name, address, telephone numbers, e-mail address, college or university affiliation and level of study of the presenter(s) must also be included. Any special requests or needs for audio-visual equipment must also be indicated. We will be accepting submissions for peer and academic review between February 2nd and March 30th, 2015.
