Online Forum

Online Forum


Participate in the discussion.

Ever interested in creating and sustaining a culture of conversation among scholars working in American religion—be it through the journal, the Young Scholars in American Religion Program, or the Biennial Conferences—we want to provide opportunities for thoughtful discussion on a more regular basis. To that end, the Center has created an online version of its popular FORUM section that appears annually in the journal. This Online Forum will appear monthly and will remind many of the sessions at our Biennial Conferences; namely, we will ask three notable scholars from various perspectives to wrestle in 1500 words with a topic or question, and then provide space for comments and thoughts by others. We invite you to read these thoughtful essays and enter the conversation.
