Scholars of Race and Religion Symposium

August 10, 2024

Montreal, Quebec

Studies of race and religion have produced valuable insights since DuBois wrote on the Souls of Black Folk. Although knowledge creation in the area of race and religion is robust, it has been hampered by disciplinary silos. Sociology, religious studies, anthropology, psychology, and theology each inform understandings of how religion is raced, yet, too often, these scholarly initiatives operate in isolation. To bridge these divides, and in cooperation with the Religion and Public Life Program at Rice University, we invite submissions to our second annual interdisciplinary Race and Religion symposium.

This symposium provides a full day of paper sessions and networking in the context of the annual meeting for the Association for the Sociology of Religion. Our goal is to continue building a network of scholars for collaboration and mutual edification in the study of race and religion.


Please find the call for papers here: CFP Race and Religion Symposium ASR 2024

Interested participants should submit an abstract of no more than 250 words via this link. The deadline for submissions is 11:59pm on March 8th


Thank you and see you in Montreal!
