The Central Texas Colloquium on Religion (CTCR) is an initiative to build stronger connections between the wealth of academic professionals and students of religion in Central Texas. Our partner schools and institutions work together to co-host lectures and events across  institutional lines that are of interest to the broader scholarly community and the wider public. CTCR is interested in a wide range of topics in the fields of religion and religious studies. Because the study of religion contains a strong interdisciplinary element, our interests are broadly conceived to include related fields such as: science and religion, anthropology, history, sociology, literature, economics, philosophy, politics, etc. For more information, or to propose an event in the area, please email
