American Academy of Religion:


Founded in 1909

At the American Academy of Religion’s annual meeting, over 7,500 scholars gather to share research and collaborate on scholarly projects.

AAR annual meeting sessions are grouped into over 70 program units, each representing an ongoing community of scholars who are collectively engaged in pursuing knowledge about a specific religious tradition or a specific aspect of religion.

In addition, the AAR’s ten regional groups sponsor smaller annual meetings that are similar in structure to the Academy-wide meeting.

All of the world’s major religious traditions, as well as indigenous and historical religions, are explored in the work of AAR members.
