Watch out for the first issue of our PASR Journal this 2014!
The PASR Journal is the official journal of the Philippine Association for the Sociology of Religion (PASR). It publishes (1) theoretical and methodological papers on religion as a social institution and as a process especially in relation to other social structures in Philippine society; (2) academic reviews of recent books and articles in the sociology of religion; and (3) reflections about fora, seminars and conferences organized by PASR. The journal promotes interdisciplinarity and academic dialogue among scholars and practitioners in the social sciences, philosophy, theology and cultural studies by providing an academic platform for theoretical, methodological and pragmatic engagements. This journal is refereed by both international and local experts and is published annually by PASR.
The PASR Journal invites submission of unpublished manuscript with a preferable length of 3,000 to 10,000 words but longer contribution may also be accepted. An abstract with a length of at most 300 words is required. Manuscript must be submitted in MS Word format, double-spaced, font size 12-point to email@example.com. Submission must be in English or Filipino. Referencing must be in APA (American Psychological Association) format. The editors may consider to reduce the length of the manuscript especially when high cost of publication is an issue; however, the contributor will be notified which part of his/her paper might be removed or truncated before publishing the final e-journal or hard copy. Through online exchange of notes and comments between the editors and the contributor, a final manuscript for publication is expected to be achieved. This is to ensure that no substantial part or idea in the manuscript will be deleted before publication. Photographs, illustrations and tables maybe included and should be in high quality.
Facts, figures, analyses and opinions in articles published in the PASR Journal are solely the responsibility of the contributors including copyright infringement, if there is so. They do not in any manner represent the views of the PASR and the editors of the journal. The editors have the right to reject manuscripts that are deemed inappropriate for publication.
For inquiries about submission, subscription, advertisement or PASR membership, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We invite you to visit our blog at pasr2.wordpress.com for more information about the Philippine Association for the Sociology of Religion (PASR).
CALL FOR PAPERS
Religion in the 21st Century:
National Canopy Forum on Religion in Contemporary Philippine Society
February 26 – 28, 2014
Manila Room, Hasmin Hostel,
Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Sta. Mesa, Manila
Many scholars in the past century predicted that modernity, industrialization, science and secularism will cause the wane of religion as a definitive force in society in the years to come. To some degree, their predictions have come true as we consider some aspects of religion dwindling in their influence today; however, we cannot discard the fact that religious processes and structures continue to thrive in different communities and, to some extent, morph into different forms. These religious processes pervade and manifest in different avenues of social life: sometimes determinative of current social change and socio-political relations resulting to conflicts and wars; oftentimes more implicit and benign, becoming constitutive of the way we define ourselves, relate to others and see the world.
This National Canopy Forum (NCF) explores the contemporary relevance of Religion as a social institution in society. Speakers in the first day will explore Contemporary Theories in the Sociology of Religion such as those of Niklas Luhmann and Bruno Latour. The following day, speakers will talk about Indigenous Research Methods. This is timely and important since sociologizing religion requires sensitizing theories and concepts and culturally sensitive methodology. On the last day, speakers and participants will discuss current researches and insights that tackle some of the most neglected but intriguing dimensions of Philippine society. Panel themes include: (1) the Dialogue of Life in Quiapo and Binondo; (2) Religion in Everyday Life; (3) Religion, Technology and Cyberspace; (4) Religion in times of Disasters; (5) the Cult of the Dead; (6) Religion in Educational Institutions and (7) Religious Heritage in Philippine Society. Others panel themes may be created depending on submissions received by the secretariat.
We invite individual submission of abstracts delving on these panel themes for possible presentation in the NCF until JANUARY 15. You may send your abstracts or inquiries to any of these email addresses: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Each interested participant will have to pay P 2,500.00 registration fee to help the organizers in shouldering the cost of food, seminar kit and other expenses incurred while setting up the NCF. Certificates of participation and completion of training will be given after the event. For those who want to join PASR, you may approach the secretariat and pay P 1,000.00 for individual membership good for 1 year; P 3,500.00 for individual membership good for 4 years; and P 10,000.00 for institutional membership good for 3 years. Members will receive a certificate of membership and access to PASR e-journal.
