CFP> Roundtable Discussion on Chinese religions at the AAR (11/23)

The Society for the Study of Chinese Religions is accepting proposals from ABDs and recent PhDs to make an informal presentation of their work at a roundtable during its session (11:30-1:00 on Sunday, November 23) at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Religions in San Diego. We are interested in roughly 20 minute talks on any aspect of Chinese religions. The presentations may focus on recent field or archival work, or on a new critical framework of analysis of Chinese religion. Nominations of younger scholars by thesis advisors are welcome.
