Our website will be updated with the latest information about online registration, meal tickets, conference housing, and transportation information.
St. Mary’s University is a private Catholic university in Canada whose mission is to prepare students to become “lifelong learners, engaged citizens and compassionate members of society.” Open to all, St. Mary’s University is focused on developing the whole person: mind, body and spirit. Immersed in the Catholic intellectual tradition, St. Mary’s seeks to help students live with integrity, compassion and confidence. Its liberal arts education introduces students to “the breadth and depth of human intellectual experience, an unrestrained search for meaning and purpose that enables students to achieve the full measure of their being. It is a place that promotes understanding of and respect for the inherent dignity that defines society.”
Anne Moore of University of Calgary, our PNWAAR/SBL/ASOR President, will deliver the Presidential Address on Friday, May 5 at 7 pm, with introduction by AAR President-Elect Eddie S. Glaude Jr. of Princeton University.
