Applied Religious Studies Committee, Death, Dying, and Beyond Unit, and Teaching Religion Unit

Call for Proposals

Working and Teaching Outside the Academy: A Roundtable on Death, Dying, and Beyond Landscapes: The Death, Dying, and Beyond Unit, Applied Religious Studies Committee, and the Teaching Religion Unit would like to host a roundtable discussion that will bring together individuals educationally trained in religion, comparative religious studies, theology, etc. who are working, teaching or consulting in fields outside the academy in the death, dying, and beyond landscapes. These fields could include death technology, funeral services, grief and bereavement counseling, media (e.g. podcasts), hospice and hospital work, policy and nonprofits. This moderated, roundtable discussion will generally explore and value careers beyond the academy but more particularly the ways in which education, skills and pedagogical training in religion have uniquely prepared folks for careers in fields associated with death, dying, and bereavement outside the academy.
