Collaborations: Directions in the Study of Religion

Lehigh University Religion Studies Conference, 10/28, 9:00am-5:30pm

UC Center, Room #303

Please join us for this year’s “Alice Eckardt Visiting Scholar in Residence” featuring Dr. Russell T. McCutcheon, Professor and Chair of The University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa’s Department of Religious Studies (studying religion in culture – check out the blog!) who will deliver a plenary address on October 27, 2014 at 6:00pm in Linderman, The Scheler Family Forum Room on the theme of, “And That's Why No One Takes the Humaniti­­­­es Seriously.” 

Following that, join us again on October 28, 2014 for the “Collaborations: Directions in the Study of Religion” conference hosted by Lehigh University’s Department of Religion Studies and featuring Dr. Russell T. McCutcheon as a respondent.


“Collaborations: Directions in the Study of Religion” is a conference designed to engage and discuss how scholars representing various perspectives in the academic study of religion handle approaching popular topics of inquiry – such as tradition, experience, and origins. Among the presentations and dialogue, these “popular topics” will serve as a thematic entrée that cuts across areas of study and data to enable a lively discussion about how such concepts are handled in the broader field and our own work in particular. The proceedings from this conference will be published and featured in a later edited volume. 


Response to Conference Presentations, Dr. Russell T. McCutcheon, 5:30pm

Introduction of respondent: Dr. Rob Rozehnal, Lehigh University
