2021 Virtual Conference
After several summer discussions and online meetings by both the Executive Committee and the Board, the Southwest Commission on Religious Studies (SWCRS) Board of Directors has decided not to host an in-person meeting this coming spring, as we have done since 1974. Rather, due to the pandemic, and its health and budget implications for member institutions, the Commission will instead host a condensed on-line meeting via Zoom on Saturday morning--March 6, 2021--from 9 until noon CST. The format for the meeting will be panel presentations and discussions.

The registration site does not accept group registrations, but advanced registration for groups may be completed by emailing the names, institution, affiliated organization, and type (faculty, student). Payment can be completed either by paying directing through the SWCRS Paypal Site or by paying onsite at the meeting.

The SWCRS encourages related scholarly organizations, university departments, and other faculty and research groups to coordinate their meetings with the SWCRS. Take advantage of the SWCRS meeting planning and the excellent venue/location of the hotel. Meetings could be held concurrently with the SWCRS or on the Thursday-Friday and Sunday-Monday surrounding the regular conference.
