2nd Bi-Annual Religion in American Culture Conference

This is an ultra-fast, very quick post while I'm busy with my family this weekend.

I'm thrilled to be part of the Second Bi-Annual Conference on Religion in American Culture at the beginning of June sponsored by the Center for the Study of Religion and Culture at IUPUI and by Religion & American Culture: A Journal of Interpretation. This is a rare gathering of very fine scholars of religion across the disciplines. 

The extensive series of conversations combines insights of those working from different perspectives to stimulate new and better understandings of religion’s role in American life.

The first Conference on Religion and American Culture, held in Indianapolis June 4-7, 2009, laid the foundation for the series, with a focus on recognizing disciplinary boundaries and exploring how scholars within those disciplines might learn from each other. Proceedings of those first sessions are available online (PDF file download here).  Also -- Linford Fisher blogged his highlights, and I blogged several posts myself here, here, and here, here, and here, here, here, and even here  at this site.

This is a major conference for hearing and interacting with notable scholars.  Full information on the this affordable conference is front-page news at the RAAC website.  I thoroughly enjoyed the first one and expect much insight and passion throughout our coming days together.

Hope to see you there!
