This working group will provide a productive forum for the exchange of ideas regarding the combination of theoretical frameworks and methodological approaches from the disciplines of Religious Studies, Anthropology, and History as well as reflections among them in both classical and contemporary scholarship.

Our monthly meetings will consider assigned readings.  We will also host a year-end symposium with a visiting scholar whose work reflects the group's topic. This event will include a special session on that scholar's work, and a public lecture.
