Society for the Study of Japanese Religions

日本宗教研究会

 

Welcome!

Welcome to the website of the Society for the Study of Japanese Religions (SSJR). SSJR is an international association of approximately 200 scholars and graduate students committed to the academic study of the religions of Japan and is affiliated with the American Academy of Religion (AAR) and the Association of Asian Studies (AAS). The Society sponsors forums at the annual meetings of the AAR (November) and AAS (March) and publishes supplements based on presentations at these meetings and at other venues. This is a new website (launched November 2021), and we are currently in the process of adding content and organizational history from our old site.

Membership is open to advanced students and scholars of Japanese religions or related fields. We welcome and rely on our members' ideas and engagement, including collaboration at annual events, contributions to our website, and conceiving new functions for the SSJR. Consider reaching out!

Annual membership to the SSJR is a suggested $25 for tenured and tenure-track faculty and $15 for all others. Membership dues cover our event expenses at the AAR and AAS conferences, drinks/meals for invited panelists, and website maintenance (graduate-student supported).
