Conference Group for the Study of Religion in World History


At the annual meeting of the World History Association, a group of participants resolved to form a Conference Group for the Study of Religion in World History. This arose out of a perceived need to integrate the study of religion into the mainstream of world history scholarship, given its obvious importance as a trans-regional and globalizing force. The purposes of the group are: 1) to establish and maintain a presence at meetings which address world history topics through the organization of panels and contributions of papers to panels on related themes, structured to reach a wide audience; 2) provide a network for the exchange of information and ideas such as research projects and bibliographies. This can lead to a regular newsletter, depending on participant interest. Interested persons should contact David Lindenfeld, Department of History, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA 70808, email: for a membership form
