The Mormon Social Science Association welcomes paper submissions for its annual meeting, held conjointly with the Society for the Scientific Study of Religion + Religious Research Association annual meeting in Salt Lake City from October 20 to 22, 2023.
Given the Salt Lake City location this year, we are hoping to have a robust slate of programming, which will include multiple MSSA sessions, journalist Peggy Fletcher Stack as the Glenn Vernon lecturer, and at least one off-site event.
We invite contributions on all topics relevant to the social scientific study of Mormonism, with special interest in those featuring multiculturalism, gender/sexuality, post-colonialism, generational change, and questions of disaffiliation/retention. The theme of the 2023 SSSR+RRA annual meeting is Religion: Empowering or Oppressing People and Communities?”
The MSSA invites proposals for:
- Individual Papers
- Session Proposals
- Author-Meets-Critics sessions
Submissions Open: February 1, 2023
Submissions Close: March 24, 2023
Submit paper proposals through this link by March 24.
Questions: Dr. Jana Riess, flunkingsainthood@admin
