Welcome back to Religious Studies News! I hope the academic year started well for you.
The October RSN issue is our most robust issue of the year. We have a lot of News to share: officer elections; awards; regional meeting calls for papers; etc. Our Spotlight on Teaching topic is “Teaching Religious Studies in Stand-alone MA Programs” and our Features cover a wide array of topics.
Many of you will be joining your friends and colleagues at our Annual Meeting in Chicago next month. You will find that this October issue has a large amount of information concerning the meeting as we wish to alert you to many of the special events and featured sessions.
We have also added a new item to the website in the months since our last issue. Inside the Resources Menu are several sections, including Member Notes. Member Notes is an area where AAR members can list their most recent professional milestones. Come see what your colleagues are doing — or share what has been going on in your professional life. We have also added a new entry in Ask Academic Abby.
