The Digital Futures of Religious Studies
American Academy of Religion (AAR) Annual Meeting, San Antonio, TX
Saturday, November 19 – 4:00 PM-6:30 PM
Grand Hyatt-Lone Star C (2nd Level)
2. Research Projects
5. What’s next?
Each section will have a brief Q&A and the final portion (about 25 minutes) will be an open floor discussion including all the participants and attendees. Overall, our goal is to spark an interest in the digital in all realms of our scholarly life and give some practical signals of the variety of ways academics can deploy these types of projects or tools in their daily routine.
During the session, I will be introducing our co-edited volume (with Cantwell), Introductions to Digital Humanities: Research Methods in the Study of Religion (de Gruyter), which aims to serve as a comprehensive introduction to researching religion through digital humanities methods. We hope to discuss the project with potential contributors and future readers. Hope to see you there but if you can’t make it please be in touch if you’re interested.
