American Academy of Religion's (AAR) Annual Conference November 21-24, 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia
Topics: "Marketing the Afterlife" and "NDEs"
Deadline: March 2, 2015
We encourage proposals on the following themes: marketing death or the afterlife, and near death experiences--NDEs.
For marketing death, in view of a co-sponsored session with the Religion and Popular Culture Group, we are seeking anything that investigates the popular representation of afterlife destinations or death, and/or how these are marketed or used to promote films, books, and other products.
We are also interested in contemporary issues involved with the subject of near death experiences (NDEs) including (but not limited to) cognition, neurophysiology, and NDEs; NDEs and popular culture; cross-cultural comparisons of NDEs.
We also welcome any other proposals on the subject of death, dying, and beyond.
