Graduate Student Conference

Every spring the graduate students in the department organize and host a conference designed to showcase their scholarly work (and that of other, visiting students and faculty) in Religious Studies.  Faculty respondents provide brief analysis of the papers presented, and there is always lively discussion among participants.

Most recently, the spring 2013 conference was on the theme of “Religion and Desire,” and included a keynote address by Professor Elaine Craddock, of Southwestern University, on religion in third gender communities in India.
