The British Association for the Study of Religions (BASR) was founded in 1954 and is a member association of the International Association for the History of Religions and of the European Association for the Study of Religions.
The object of BASR is to promote the academic study of religion/s, understood as the historical, social, theoretical, critical and comparative study of religion/s through the interdisciplinary collaboration of all scholars whose research is defined in this way. BASR is not a forum for confessional, apologetic, or similar concerns.
BASR pursues its aims principally through an annual conference and general meeting, a regular Bulletin, and a Journal of the British Association for the Study of Religions. Membership is open to all scholars normally resident in the United Kingdom.
All correspondence concerning the BASR should be sent to the Honorary Secretary:
Dr Stephen E. Gregg, Department of Religion and Philosophy, MC234 Millennium City Building, University of Wolverhampton, Wulfruna Street, Wolverhampton, WV1 1LY
