Connecting educators, students, and scholars working at the intersections of religion and education to build community, support research, and promote religious literacy.

Connecting educators, students, and scholars working at the intersections of religion and education to build community, support research, and promote religious literacy.

We are an interdisciplinary network of educators, students, and scholars who examine issues involving religion and education in the United States, Canada, and around the globe. The REC strives to bridge gaps between academic fields and educational arenas to promote research and initiatives on religious literacy education, relationships between religion and public schools, and other topics at the intersections of religion and schooling. 

We meet regularly via video conference during the academic year. These sessions provide space for members to present on works in progress, seek feedback on projects, and share findings and experiences with initiatives related to religion and education. 

REC events will resume in early 2023!

Please reach out if you are interested in presenting or joining the leadership team.
