The Canadian Society for the Study of Religion/Société Canadienne pour l'Étude de la Religion (CSSR/SCÉR) is a Canadian academic society oriented to the scholarly study of religion that fosters an interdisciplinary environment, encourages research in the development of the study of religion with particular reference to Canada, and promotes a critical examination of the goals, methods, and styles of teaching demanded by the discipline. This year's annual meeting will take place May 30-June 2, 2020 in conjunction with the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences at Western University. The Congress 2020 theme is “Bridging Divides: Confronting Colonialism and Anti-Black Racism.” The CSSR/SCÉR invites submissions that address the Congress 2020 theme of anti-Black racism, colonialism, inequality, and exclusion. We also welcome proposals on other aspects of religion from various academic perspectives.
