A signature contribution of the Society for the Anthropology of Religion, and the anthropology of religion more generally, has been to reveal both the overt and covert ways in which religious practice both informs and can be conjoined to myriad other domains of social life. From James Frazer’s interrogation of the pagan roots of Christianity to Saba Mahmood’s insights about the implicit Christianity of liberalism, the anthropology of religion has revealed assemblages of religious forms and practices with other forms and practices that superficially appear to be devoid of religious influence.
The 2023 SAR Spring Conference highlights this enduring contribution and build on it by emphasizing this critical perspective in the study of religion at-large. We seek to
showcase disciplinary and interdisciplinary work to highlight and develop understanding of religion both as a lived practice and a category. The conference will be held in person.
