Notre Dame Younger Scholars Conference

Given the conflicting dates about the deadline for participants in the Younger Scholars in the Sociology of Religion (YSSR) Conference, the deadline to apply to present (and receive travel expense reimbursement) is extended until January 15, 2019. 

The Center for the Study of Religion and Society at Notre Dame is again hosting this conference on April 26, 2019, bringing advanced graduate students and early assistant professors to campus to present their research and interact with fellow sociologists of religion. All expenses will be paid for those selected. Professors of other rank or anyone else interested in the conference are encouraged to register by January 31, 2019 to join the younger scholars.

As part of the YSSR, the second Andrew M. Greeley Lifetime Achievement Award in the Sociology of Religion will be presented to Nancy Ammerman of Boston University, who will give a plenary talk and be celebrated at dinner.
