Welcome back to the latest edition of the Religious Studies Project Opportunities Digest! This week you will find twelve conference call for papers, two journal call for papers, and three event opportunities.

Be sure to check out the more recent issue of Implicit Religion! The journal is edited by our very own David Robertson and includes an article by Vivian Asimos, whose recent RSP podcast on Slenderman and Online Mythology can found here. The journal can be viewed online at equinox!
