The 2007 International Conference
GLOBALIZATION, IMMIGRATION, AND CHANGE IN RELIGIOUS MOVEMENTS
June 7-9, 2007
CALL FOR PAPERS
This international conference will be an opportunity for scholars and others from around the world to share their insights about the perceptions, reactions, conflict, change, and adaptations of individuals, religions and secular institutions to globalization, immigration, and to the growing diversity to be found in many countries.

Themes may include:
Religion and immigration
Globalization of religious networks
Religious movements (old and new) and change in international perspective
Internationalization of Western esotericism: West, East and what about Middle East?
