American Academy of Religion Southwest Region:
Welcome to the official website of the American Academy of Religion Southwest Region. The American Academy of Religion is an academic community that serves two primary goals for students, teachers, and scholars of religion: “(1) To promote understanding of and critical reflection on religious traditions, issues, questions, values, texts, practices, and institutions. To this end, we foster communication and exchange among teachers and scholars, and the public understanding of religion. (2) To serve the professional interests of members as students, teachers, and scholars.”
As a regional extension of the American Academy Religion, we are committed to supported the study of religion in the Southwestern United States through the following four services:
