The AAR Conference Stories Project

As part of our REL 502 course, we are putting together a collection of stories about people’s experiences at the annual American Academy of Religion national meeting. The AAR is more than an academic conference, it’s also a social and cultural event and we want to try and capture the aspects of the meeting that don’t show up on the conference program. We will take the best stories we can gather and use them in an upcoming episode of our podcast, Study Religion. You can submit your story three ways and we welcome anonymous submissions.

  1. Call our AAR Stories hotline at 205-626-9346 and leave a message.
  2. Record yourself telling your story and email the audio file to Put “AAR Story” in the subject line.
  3. Or submit a text version of your story using the form below:
