Conference: How Do We Study Religion and Emotion?

Conference logoHow Do We Study Religion and Emotion?
National Humanities Center
Research Triangle Park, North Carolina
February 19–20, 2015

The surge of interest in the study of religion and emotion is part of a broader “affective turn” currently taking place across the humanities. This conference will gather an international group of scholars to discuss ways of studying emotion in religion and to debate how our querying the very terms that we use to define our endeavors—emotion, affect, feeling, passion, desire, sentiment, and other terms—is crucial to effective deployment of them in investigating religion.

The conference is free and cosponsored by the American Academy of Religion* and Florida State University.
