Indiana University’s Undergraduate Religious Studies Association (URSA) invites undergraduates to participate in their annual spring symposium. This year’s symposium will be held in a hybrid (in-person and online) format online on March 31-April 1, 2023.
The symposium’s central aim is interdisciplinary conversation about religion. As such, undergraduate students from across the humanities—Anthropology, Area Studies, English, Comparative Literature, History, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Sociology, etc.—are welcome to participate in the symposium.
Papers on a wide array of topics pertaining to the field of religious studies are eligible. Papers should be 2000-2250 words in length. They should be written and read in an accessible, colloquial voice. Each presentation, which may include multimedia visuals, must be no longer than 20 minutes so as to allow for questions and answers. If you are interested in presenting your research in a friendly, welcoming, and professional venue, please meet the following deadlines.

- The final draft of your paper or presentation is due by Mar 6.
