RHA Conference Adelaide July 2012

The Religious History Associaton will hold its 8th Biennial Conference in association with the Australian Historical Association in Adelaide, 9-13 July 2012. The theme for this Conference is Secularism and the keynote speaker was to have been one of the world’s most eminent authorities on secularism, Professor Barry Alexander Kosmin, Director, the Institute for the Study of Secularism in Society and Culture and Research Professor, Public Policy & Law Program.

Unfortunately, Barry Kosmin will be unable to join us in Adelaide. We wish him well.

The paper by Barry Kosmin will now be replaced by a keynote paper and rountable members of the RHA executive.
