Religious Studies Project Opportunities Digest – March 29, 2016

Dear Subscriber

We are pleased to bring you this week’s opportunities digest and would like to express our gratitude to everyone who has submitted calls for papers, event notifications, job vacancies, etc. Our inbox seems to be a little quiet of late, so don’t forget to send us any opportunities you come across. It is super easy to have a Religious Studies call for papers, exciting event, or alluring job vacancy appear in future Opportunities Digests! Simply use the submission form, forward them to oppsdigest@religiousstudiesproject.com or, better yet, include said e-mail address in your mailing list for such e-mails!

We thank you for your contribution. If you notice anything weird this week, it’s because Chris has compiled this digest while Jane enjoys a well-earned holiday.
