The International Cultic Studies Association (ICSA) is conducting its 2016 Annual International Conference with Info-Secte/Info-Cult of Montreal in Dallas, Texas June 30 - July 2, 2016 (preconference workshops on Wednesday June 29th).
The conference theme is recovery from cults and high-control groups, although posters on any aspect of cultic studies will be considered. The conference committee is especially interested in considering poster sessions from students.
Please submit your research, including research in progress, and be part of a growing and exciting international community of researchers in the field of cultic studies, religious studies, and sectarianism, undue influence, and new religious movements.
Your poster can focus on one or more of the many areas in this diverse and emerging field including, but not limited to:
· social psychology or sociology of influence
· study of harm or treatment of victims
· history, anthropology, and culture of cults or sects
· demographic studies on the prevalence of new religious or other movements
· policy and political science of cultic groups
· individual subjectivity, agency, and creativity in cultural groups
· Boundaries between the individual and society in group and other contexts.
Your proposal should consist of an abstract of 300 words or less. We also welcome group research project submissions. We also need a short biographical sketch. If you already have one on our people profile page, let us know if it is okay or needs changing. If we do not have a bio, please send one. Contact: email@example.com.
Deadline for abstracts and bio information: May 1, 2016
