American Academy of Religion Annual Meeting #CFP Deadline Extended to March 8th! March 7, 2022

The deadline for AAR Annual Meeting paper proposals is extended to March 8

From the American Academy of Religion:

PAPERS System is Open for Submissions. Due to unexpected technical challenges, some AAR members were unable to submit their proposals. Because of these issues, we are extending the deadline by one week, to Tuesday, March 8, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. EST.

What You Need to Know:

  • The Annual Meeting will have an in-person only format this year. There will not be a virtual component for the 2022 meeting. For future years, we are exploring the possibility of offering a separate, virtual meeting in addition to the in-person Annual Meeting.
  • Annual Meeting proposal submission is restricted to current AAR members only. You will need to renew your membership in order to log into the PAPERS site. If you are in the field of Religious Studies or Theology and are not able to afford AAR membership dues, you can apply for a grant that will be rapidly processed so that you can submit a proposal.
  • Exceptions will be made for scholars outside of the field of Religious Studies and Theology on a case-by-case basis. Requests must be submitted through the AAR Membership Waiver for Proposal Submission form.
  • The deadline for submitting proposals is Tuesday, March 8, 2022 at 5:00 p.m. EST.

Here’s the call from a program unit I’m directly involved with, Traditions of Eastern Late Antiquity:

Call for Proposals

For the 2022 annual conference, Traditions of Eastern Late Antiquity is organizing two sessions.

  • One will be an open session for which papers on any topic germane to the subject area of the Program Unit may be proposed. We particularly encourage papers from graduate students, new AAR members, and minoritized scholars.
  • The other is a session on “New Directions in the Interdisciplinary Late Antique East.” We invite graduate students to submit proposals to share work from their dissertations exploring topics relating to the late antique east from an interdisciplinary perspective. The goal is for this panel to be generative, and offer fruitful and constructive conversation.
And for those who may want to know more about the program unit itself:

Statement of Purpose

This program unit focused on Late Antiquity in the East aims to provide a home for the study of religious traditions that are rooted in Mesopotamia, Persia, and western Asia, particularly those parts that were outside the Roman cultural reach such as Zoroastrianism, Manichaeism, and Mandaeism. While the unit will focus on late antiquity, many of these traditions, and particularly their extant texts come to us from much later periods, and this scholarly issue will be part of our discussions. In addition, many of the traditions that were born in this time and place also spread to other parts of the world, and the study of them in those forms and contexts also has a place within this program unit, as does investigation of their response to the rise of Islam in the region. In addition, this unit’s focus is not exclusively on those traditions that developed uniquely in this region, but also those which, when transplanted there, had significant evolutions in that milieu that differ from their counterparts in other times and places (e.g. Christianity, Judaism). We likewise encourage research which focuses on the interaction between the various communities and traditions of this place and time.
