American Regional Meeting

November 2014 in San Diego

The International Society for Science and Religion is sponsoring a 24-hour conference on the eve of the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Religion, which is held this year in San Diego in late November. The ISSR pre-conference begins at 1:00 pm on Friday and runs through 11:30 am on Saturday.

Four events are featured:

First, from 1:00 to 4:30, there will be a panel of speakers addressing recent research on emergence in science, philosophy, and religion.  Second, from about 4:45-6:45, we are planning an ISSR members-only dinner, hosted by our newly elected president, Michael Reiss. The dinner comes at no charge for members, but reservations are required.  To reserve your place, please send an email to Ron Cole-Turner at coleturn@pts.edu. Third, following dinner at 7:00, ISSR is co-sponsoring an evening session on positive responses to evolution among evangelical Christians.  Finally, on Saturday from 8:30 to 11:30, ISSR has organized a panel on religion and ecology.  For details on the program, including a list of confirmed speakers and room locations, please see the conference website www.issr.yolasite.com.
