Designed to cultivate and support a diverse, engaged community

The rapidly evolving developments with the COVID-19 outbreak have moved us into a time of unprecedented uncertainty. As we all scramble to navigate the crisis, we want to assure you that the AAR staff is continuing the work we have been doing for you. We are steadfast in our efforts to bring you a new, improved website soon. Not only will the redesigned website have an updated look, it will also feature a cleaner navigation so that members can take full advantage of the many resources and benefits an AAR membership provides.

Over the last couple of years, we’ve asked members, committees, and partners how our online services could serve them better. Redesigning reflects our commitment to meeting those needs. This new website will help us continue to be the trusted guild for scholars of religion by enabling stronger engagement and connection among members.
