2022 Annual Meetings

The 2022 Annual Meetings in Denver, Colorado, November 19–22, hosted by the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) and the American Academy of Religion (AAR), is the world's largest gathering of scholars interested in the study of religion. As we emerge from the pandemic’s grip and get back to in-person Annual Meetings, you don’t want to miss the opportunity to reconnect with colleagues, publishers and friends. It will be a good time to engage with leading scholars within the field of religion and network with potential employers and others from around the world. 

There will be more than 1,000 events, including a plethora of academic sessions, workshops, meetings, receptions, and tours. The Annual Meeting Exhibit Hall will feature more than 100 publishers, and you’ll be able to pitch ideas, connect with others, and review the latest publications within the field.
