Public Affairs

Within a context of free inquiry and critical examination, the American Academy of Religion welcomes all disciplined reflection on religion—both from within and outside of communities of belief and practice—and seeks to enhance its broad public understanding. 

Over the years, the AAR has engaged in a number of initiatives to broaden the public understanding of religion, including promoting teaching about religion in public schools; facilitating access by journalists and public officials to scholarly expertise on any religion or religious practice; and advocating on behalf of its members for government support of research and teaching about religion.
