The American Academy of Religion (AAR) is the preeminent scholarly and professional society in the field of religion, recognized as the field’s leader in critical scholarship; teaching and learning about religion; and resources for pedagogy, programs, the professoriate, and the public understanding of religion. In a world where religion plays so central a role in social, political, and economic events, as well as in the lives of communities and individuals, there is a critical need for ongoing reflection upon and understanding of religious traditions, issues, questions, and values. The American Academy of Religion’s mission is to promote such reflection through excellence in scholarship and teaching. As a scholarly society and professional association of teachers and research scholars, the American Academy of Religion has over 9,000 members, most of whom teach in some 1,500 colleges, universities, seminaries, and schools in North America and abroad. The Academy is dedicated to furthering knowledge of religions in all their forms and manifestations. This is accomplished through Academy-wide and regional conferences and meetings, research support, publications, professional development and outreach programs, and member services. Within a context of free inquiry and critical examination, the AAR welcomes all disciplined reflection on religion—from both within and outside of communities of belief and practice—and seeks to enhance its broad public understanding.
