The 'Pop-Up Conference' organized by the Faculty of Theology at the University of Zurich is aimed at Scholars at Risk from all disciplines who conduct research on religion or spirituality, and at all those who are interested in the research and experiences of these researchers.
Scholars at Risk are researchers from countries affected by war, states with dictatorial regimes but also those who belong to an oppressed minority, that are exposed to discrimination and persecution. They are subject to attack by state and non-state actors in the form of destruction of research material, deprivation of liberty, physical and psychological abuse, or even death, and are thus working under considerably difficult conditions.
The conference aims to provide a platform to network and share experiences, as well as to present research projects and results.
Where: Theologische Fakultät, Kirchgasse 9, 8001 Zürich
