Religions in Conversation Conference

The Eighth Annual Religions in Conversation Conference at Claremont Graduate University, "Religion and Politics: Governance, Power, and the Sacred," will be held February 27-28th, 2015.  This year's conference will explore the tensions and concurrences of religion and politics across a range of academic disciplines.  In doing so, we hope to reveal how our understanding of religion within an array of social, cultural, and temporal contexts has been shaped and continues to be shaped by political concerns.

This conference will explore a range of issues in politics and religion in their myriad of forms, manifestations, and contexts.  It includes transdisciplinary research related to traditions represented by many of Claremont Graduate University's religious councils, as well as other religious traditions.

This conference is free and open to the public.  However, we request that attendees register at
