The Pluralism Project at the 2004 American Academy of Religion Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas

The Pluralism Project invites affiliates, student researchers, and friends to join us at a reception on Friday, November 19th from 7:00-10:00pm, the evening before the annual meeting of the American Academy of Religion begins. We will meet at the San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk, Salon A/B. Visual displays of summer student research will be available for review:

  • Sarita Cargas, Oxford University: “Attitudes Towards Interfaith” Survey
  • Stephanie Saldana, Harvard Divinity School: “Religious Diversity in San Antonio, TX”
  • Brenda E. Whitlock, Arizona State University: “The Arizona Buddhist Temple 1936-Present: A Historical Narrative”
  • Jeff Wilson, University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill: “Changing Minds: Cooperation and Contestation at a Pan-Sectarian Buddhist Holiday”
  • Ben Zeller, University of North Carolina: “Mapping the Hindu Community in North-Central North Carolina”

The Pluralism Project is also arranging a bus tour to various religious centers in San Antonio. The tour will visit the Dhammabucha Buddhist Temple and the Hindu Temple of San Antonio on Saturday, November 20, 2004 from 9:00am to 12:45pm. We will be departing from the Lila Cockrell area at the Convention Center, across Market Street from the Marriott Riverwalk. There is a $10 charge to cover the rental expense. We have a limited number of seats, so reservations are required.
