About the Event

GCRR will hold their 2020 academic conference in partnership with the New Story Festival at Huston-Tillotson University in Austin, Texas, September 25-27, 2020.

The GCRR Conference exists to promote the academic study of religion and the scholars conducting that research from around the world. Because GCRR makes unique, scholarly contributions to both religious and ministerial practices, we are excited to join forces with the New Story Festival, an innovative and holistic event promoting creativity, community, and the common good.

This three-day academic conference will feature scholarly presentations centered on the theme of international peace-building from professional researchers, educators, and students of religion, as well as a keynote address by GCRR President and author, Dr. Darren M. Slade. The GCRR Conference will run concurrently with the second-annual New Story Festival. Your ticket purchase gives you access to both the conference and the numerous workshops, speakers, conversations, art, music, and fun happening at the New Story Festival!
