SSSR 2014 Annual Meeting
2014-10-31 to 2014-11-02
JW Marriott, Indianapolis, Indiana
Our theme for the 2014 conference is “Building Bridges” 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.
