The Bahá'í Faith has maintained a presence at the American Academy of Religion since about 1985. Currently, Bahá'í papers are presented at a Bahá'í Studies Colloquy, held in association with the AAR. Bahá'ís are also encouraged to submit papers dealing with aspects of the Faith to other AAR panels.

The next annual meeting of the American Academy of Religion will occur in Nashville, Tennessee, November 18-21, 2000. The Colloquy will host one or two sessions of talks on the Bahá'í Faith as it relates to themes and interests of the American Academy of Religion, which is a professional gathering of 8,000 university professors and graduate students of religion and the Bible. The presentations should be thirty minutes in length.

Talks will be selected based on 250-word abstracts describing their main points. Please submit abstracts to Dr. Robert Stockman at They may also be faxed to 240-209-1273. The deadline is April 30.
