Our Program Committee is hard at work planning for our 2019 meeting in New York, “Engaging Religion in a Contested Age.” You can look forward to two engaging joint ASA/ASR sessions, an insightful Presidential Address by our President, Paula D. Nesbitt, a thought-provoking Furfey Lecture with Peter Beyer, and plenty of socializing opportunities during our evening receptions. In fact, our welcome reception on August 11 will be a joint reception with the ASA Religion Section.
Our meeting will be held at the Park Central New York Hotel located at 870 Seventh St., just a few steps from the ASA hotel. Rooms with king beds will be $185/night, and rooms with two double beds will be $205/night. You may make your hotel reservations by clicking here. Please make your reservations before July 19, 2019 to guarantee that you receive the low ASR room rate. IMPORTANT NOTE: if the online reservation system gives you any problems, please email me. Some nights are filling up fast, so please make your reservation ASAP. If your search includes a night that is already sold out, you will get an error message. Please email me if this happens, and I will assist as best I can.
