The Seminar Papers are the basis for the discussions in Westar academic sessions. They will not be presented orally at the event. Persons wishing to follow the discussions should read the papers in advance. Electronic copies of papers for Westar seminars will be posted as PDFs on the relevant national meeting page as they come available (usually two to three weeks before the event). There is no charge for electronic papers. However, if you would like to receive hard copies of the seminar papers, the cost is $25 to cover the cost of printing.
Westar Institute fosters collaborative, cumulative research in religious studies and communicates the results of the scholarship to a broad, non-specialist public.
Help bring accessible religious scholarship into public conversation.
