Just because it is the summer term does not mean the faculty and graduate students of the Department of Religion at UF are taking a break. Far from it!

Our faculty and students are conducting fieldwork, exploring archives, learning languages, teaching courses, and making presentations across the globe. Here is a sampling of some of the scholarly presentations our faculty and graduate students are making in June:

  • By invitation, Professor Bron Taylor will present during and participate in a research-related meeting on “Religion and Responses to Environmental Crises,” at the Social Science Research Council in New York City on June 11, 2018.
  • Professor Rachel Gordan will present at the conference for the American Jewish Historical Society, in Philadelphia, on Sunday, June 17, 2018, in a panel on New Scholarship on Jewish Women’s Writers.
  • Venu Mehta (Ph.D. student, Hindu Traditions) presented a paper entitled ” Re-Locating Religion in Bollywood Movies of 2000s: An Analysis of Critiquing and Criticizing ‘Religion’ in the movies – ‘Oh My God: OMG!’ and ‘Dharm’” at the 2018 International Conference on Religion & Film, hosted by the University of Toronto, and sponsored by the Journal of Religion & Film in Toronto.
