Conference Homepage: www.poverty-conference.org

The conference is open to all disciplines (development studies, sociology, economics, anthropology, social medicine, geography, political science, legal studies and the humanities), approaches, methods and concepts within the field of poverty research, and papers coming from an inter-, trans- or multidisciplinary background are particularly welcomed. The Organizing Committee invites submissions of proposals for single papers and thematic panels in all areas of poverty research but special attention will be given to those concerned with the 2017 focus theme of religion and poverty.

The Keynote Speakers in 2017 will be Paul Cloke, Professor of Human Geography at the University of Exeter, Adam Dinham, Professor of Faith & Public Policy and Director of the Faiths and Civil Society Unit, Goldsmiths, University of London, and Emma Tomalin, Professor of Religion and Public Life at the University of Leeds, where she is director of the Centre for Religion and Public Life.

Please submit abstracts for single papers and panels via the submission form on the conference homepage. The deadline for submitting abstracts for single papers and panels is 31 March 2017. Decisions will be communicated until 30 April 2017.
