AMERICAN ACADEMY OF RELIGION WESTERN REGION (AAR/WR)
2022 ANNUAL CONFERENCE | CALL FOR PAPERS
University of Nevada, Las Vegas | March 18-20, 2022
Las Vegas, Nevada
The successful organization of our 2021 conference, which the AAR/WR organized as a virtual event due to the continued spread and threat of COVID-19, brings us confidence that our unit chairs and members will work together to create our first in-person conference in two years in 2022. We are further encouraged by the amazing team of academics and administrators at University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) with whom we are working to bring forth the conference. Our conference organizers are especially working on issues of inclusivity and accessibility for our members, and we expect to provide unique sessions that highlight our region's diversity and creativity. We also expect to provide all of our members with special networking opportunities at our 2022 conference.
The overall theme for AAR/WR's 2022 conference is: Grace, Mercy, and Atonement: Exploring Artistic, Ritual, and Social Action through Forgiveness
