Deadline Extended!

The AAR has extended the deadline for submitting paper proposals for the 2011 Annual Meeting (Nov. 19-22 in  San Francisco, CA).

As moderators of the Religion in the American West we would like to encourage submissions to our seminar session, which will hold it's fourth annual session as a part of the AAR meeting.

The call, which is pasted below, can also be accessed on the AAR Website.

This Seminar invites proposals for article-length papers to be precirculated for discussion at the Annual Meeting. Papers may cover any subject within the American West and should make clear how the topic enhances our understanding of religion in the American West, our conceptions of American religious history, and/or of religion in general. The Seminar especially welcomes papers on the following themes:

Competing Wests

West of the West

Economies of religion in the West, especially considering the West as
node(s) in a global economy

The West in Pacific World religion

New religious movements in the West

Urban and rural Wests

Religion, media, technology, and the West

Proposals are due by 11:59pm (EST) on March 8, 2011, and should be submitted online through the OP3 System.
