Program Units: Units

Units are established to encourage the exploration of an area of study or methodology, to cultivate the relation between the study of religion and a cognate discipline, or to pursue a long-range and broad research project. Units are expected to experiment with the format of sessions at the Annual Meeting. Units are approved for five-year terms. Renewals are contingent on making the case that the unit’s work needs to continue. Some units may complete their work in five years; others may continue indefinitely. Units meet for one to five sessions, as determined by the Program Committee for each term.

The following links will take you to general descriptions of the Units, including their most recent call for papers, on the AAR's PAPERS website.
