45TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF RELIGION (AASR)
The Australian Association for the Study of Religion (AASR) has been fostering the development of high quality scholarship on religion since its establishment in 1975, seeking to create a strong sense of community and mutual opportunity for established and emerging voices across Australia and the wider Asia-Pacific region.
In this current time of crisis, in which community is at a premium, the AASR will meet online for our 45th annual conference, joined by our colleagues from the New Zealand Association for the Study of Religions. Current and prospective AASR and NZASR members are warmly encouraged to apply to present their ongoing research in any field of the study of religion. Meeting in Zoom webinars on 11-12 December 2020, the conference program will highlight the strength and diversity of the study of religion, in Australia and New Zealand especially, expanding networks of scholarship and support.
We particularly welcome PhD students and will be hosting specific events targeted towards creating connections across disciplines and universities during the conference for Higher Degree Researchers and early career academics.
We welcome both individual papers as well as panel submissions relevant to religion. Proposals can be submitted in the traditional panel format as well as roundtable discussions, information sessions and interactive media. In addition, presentations which focus on methods and tools on teaching and learning in an online environment in higher education are encouraged.
