The Department of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology, University of Szeged and the ‘Bálint Sándor’ Institute for the Study of Religions invite proposals for presentations concerning celebrity cult in Post-Soviet Europe. We are interested in case studies on the following topics: A complex analysis of a given national celebrity’s cult (either politician, religious leader, singer, writer etc.); the national characteristics of the cult; the sacred places connected to the given celebrity; memorial rituals; religious connotations of the cult; the material dimension of the cult.

We invite proposals for 20-minute presentations, which address the broadly-interpreted topic to be given at the conference. Please submit your abstract of no more than 250 words to Dr. István Povedák by 25 February 2011. They must include: 1) name(s) and affiliation(s) of the author(s); 2) contact details of presenting author (postal address, telephone, fax and email address); 3) title of proposed presentation. For more information on the conference and submitting a proposal, please contact the organizers:
