Graduate Presentations8th Biennial Conference on Religion & American Culture
At this year’s Biennial Conference, we are once again pleased to invite advanced graduate students to present on their research at the opening night dessert reception sponsored by the Center’s journal, Religion and American Culture: A Journal of Interpretation. Up to 10 graduate students will be selected to provide 3-4 minute mini-presentations describing their project and the import and impact of their work on American religion. The journal seeks to publish work that revises or considerably extends our understanding of the relationship between religion and other aspects of American culture, so presentations need to focus on that goal. Following the presentations, the graduate students will receive feedback and engagement from senior scholars as well as the other attendees of the conference. The graduate students who are chosen for the Emerging Scholars panel will receive a year-long subscription to the journal. Most importantly, the Emerging Scholars panel will provide the graduate student attendees the opportunity to connect with other graduate students across the country and share their research with interdisciplinary thinkers and practitioners in the fields of American studies and religion. For full consideration, graduate students must submit their 300-400 word submission by 11:59p ET on March 1, 2024.
