Dates for Your Diary!
We are delighted to announce that the 2021 BASR annual conference will be held in the School of Divinity at the University of Edinburgh from Monday 6 to Wednesday 8 September. In 2021, Edinburgh University celebrates the 50th anniversary of the teaching of Religious Studies and the 175th anniversary of New College, the home of the School of Divinity.
The conference topic will be “From Religious Studies to the Study of Religion/s: Disciplinary Futures for the 21st century”. We seek to use this historic double anniversary to discuss disciplinary and interdisciplinary pasts and futures for Religious Studies/Study of Religion/s. The conference aims to examine post-1960s histories of research and teaching, current paradigms and prognoses, and to facilitate concrete discussions of methods, case studies, problems and successes in our field. The conference has been awarded the status of an IAHR special conference and we very much look forward to welcoming IAHR officers and all colleagues to Edinburgh.
Further details and a Call for Papers will follow soon.
Dr Steven Sutcliffe, Conference Organiser BASR 2021
