Dear Readers:

Welcome back to Religious Studies News! I hope you enjoyed your winter break. The AAR Executive Office enjoyed an incredibly successful Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL, and then returned home to spend precious holiday time with our families.

I am sure you are eager to explore our January issue of RSN. We have a very robust Annual Meeting section, including our Call for Papers, general instructions, and important deadlines. Please be sure to review the general instructions and deadlines before submitting a proposal.

The News section contains our officer elections results, information on a new discount program offered by various publishers to AAR members, and other important information related to the AAR.

And finally, please be sure to check out our Resources section. We have added several items to the website in the months since our last issue. Inside the Resources Menu are several supplements to the Website, including:

  • Ask Academic Abby: Advice given on professional concerns and how to navigate the occasionally treacherous waters of academe. We are always seeking new material.
  • Member Notes: Recent professional milestones from fellow AAR colleagues.
  • Recommended Reading: Influential, pivotal, seminal, or otherwise important publications in various fields of religion and theology.
  • Archives: Past issues of RSN and Spotlight.
