Last year we began publishing guides to some of the larger academic conferences to help interested scholars navigate the non-religion and secularity offerings at them. We are happy to announce the release of the conference guide to the 2013 annual meeting of the American Academy of Religion which is being held in Baltimore, Maryland (Nov 23-26).
As usual there are several relevant sessions, panels and papers to engage in Baltimore, but you may also wish to take special note of the four sessions granted to the brand new Secularism and Secularity Group this year. Those interested in contributing to their efforts (of fostering sustained work on such topics at AAR) should be aware that the group’s business meeting will be held immediately after the paper presentations of their third session, “Producing Secularism in Public Spaces” (Monday: 9:00 AM-11:30 AM). Happy navigating.
