Our Program Committee is hard at work planning for our 2019 meeting in New York, “Engaging Religion in a Contested Age.” You can look forward to two engaging joint ASA/ASR sessions, an insightful Presidential Address by our President, Paula D. Nesbitt, a thought-provoking Furfey Lecture, and plenty of socializing opportunities during our three evening receptions. In fact, our welcome reception on August 11 will be a joint reception with the ASA Religion Section.
Our meeting will be held at the Park Central New York Hotel located at 870 Seventh St., just a few steps from the ASA hotel. Stay turned for hotel reservation information so you can get the discounted ASR price on a room. Rooms with king beds will be $185/night, and rooms with two double beds will be $205/night.
