CFP: The Council of Societies for the Study of Religion (CSSR) Bulletin

The Council of Societies for the Study of Religion is a federation of learned societies in religion interested in enhancing coordination of the field as a whole; it seeks to initiate, coordinate, and implement projects to strengthen and advance scholarship and teaching and to support the activities of constituent societies and of their executive offices and officers. At present, we are comprised of six constituent societiesâ€"the Association of Professors and Researchers in Religious Education, the Catholic Biblical Association, the College Theological Society, the National Association of Baptist Professors of Religion, the North American Association for the Study of Religion, the Society for Buddhist-Christian Studies, and the Society of Christian Ethics. In addition, there are also four affiliated societiesâ€"the Council on Graduate Studies in Religion, the Institute on Religion in an Age of Science, the Society of Christian Ethics, and Theta Alpha Kappa, the National Hono!
 rs Society for Religious Studies and Theology.

The Bulletin is published four times per annum (February, April, September, and November) and has more than 2500 subscribers. Now in its fourth decade, the Bulletin is designed to facilitate the goals of the CSSR and thus seeks to foster conversation across the field. We cover a vast array of topics. Given its wide circulation and the diversity of interests represented by its readership, the Bulletin is a positively ideal place to publish articles and essays aimed at a broad audience in a timely manner. We especially invite and welcome essays that focus on new developments in the field, reflect on pedagogical practices within the discipline, or provide a snapshot of important events, symposia, conferences, and conversations taking place in various sectors of the academic study of religion. Graduate students in all areas of Religious Studies are enouraged to submit their work.

If you are interested in publishing in the Bulletin, please send your essay to the editor, Scott Elliott, by email at Articles should be roughly 3,000 â€" 4,000 words in length and composed in Microsoft Word or WordPerfect.

Thank you for considering the Bulletin. We look forward to reading your work.
