Religious Disbelief and the Emotions Conference
Zoom conference hosted by Macquarie University, 23rd and 24th January 2023
Throughout history, religious disbelievers have expressed themselves, sometimes in stark terms with strong emotions. Their beliefs may interact with or stem from emotions responding to hegemonic religious narratives and thought worlds. This conference seeks to bring together experts from a large variety of fields of historical and literary inquiry to help us better understand the extent to which interplays between religious disbeliefs and the emotions vary or remain similar in different time periods, locations, individuals, religious and cultural milieux, textual (or material) genres, and so on.
This conference will take place the 23rd through 24th of January 2023 on zoom.
Sydney/Melbourne/Canberra—6pm to 10pm
London—7am to 11am
Athens—9am to 1pm
