Building Bridges

SSSR’s current web site notes:

The Society for the Scientific Study of Religion was founded in 1949 by
scholars in religion and social science. Its purpose is to stimulate and
communicate significant scientific research on religious institutions
and religious experience. Scholars from all fields of study who are
interested in the scientific exploration of religion are invited to join
the Society. Membership in the Society for the Scientific Study of
Religion gives scholars the opportunity to share their research and
ideas with other scholars.

Our theme for the 2014 conference is ³Building Bridges² between all
those interested in the study of religion. This includes any disciplines
that focus upon the study of religion as well as scholars from the
widest possible geographical and cultural areas. Our intent is to build
bridges between disciplines and cultures that have become isolated and
communicate only among themselves and not to others with similar
interests but from different perspectives. Suggestions for contributions

· the study of religion in diverse cultures and regions (Eastern,
Central Europe, Asia, South America, etc.)

· the study of religion within diverse faith traditions (Islam,
Christianity, Paganism, NRMs, etc.)

· inter-disciplinary studies of religion (religious studies & the social
and behavioral sciences, etc.)

· new disciplines that study religion (cognitive science, evolutionary
psychology, etc.)

· methodology interaction in the study of religion (quantitative,
qualitative, creative, etc.)

· the study of non-belief and atheism
