Religion Across Disciplines

A new initiative of the Graduate Division of Religion, the Laney Colloquium in Religion seeks to foster interdisciplinary conversation, teaching and research on issues that span the breadth of the GDR and connect deeply with other centers of inquiry across Emory University.

Every two years the Laney Colloquium will take on a particular theme that cuts across theoretical, methodological, and disciplinary divides in the study of religion. The current theme is Global Religious Circuits. Look to the right to see what we have in store for this semester.

The Laney Colloquium is sponsored by the Laney Graduate School and Candler School of Theology
