The theme for this year’s annual meeting is “Justice and Religion.” The meeting will be held August 19–21, 2023 at the Bellevue Hotel Philadelphia. We will begin with a Welcome Reception on the evening of Saturday, August 19. We are planning this reception as a joint reception with the ASA Religion Section. The ASA Sociology of Religion Section day is Saturday, August 19.

Our President, Gerardo Marti, and Program Chair, Ruth Braunstein, have promised to make this year’s meeting unique in terms of both its intellectual content and social gatherings. We can look forward to receptions, unique thematic sessions, the Presidential address, and our Furfey lecture with Penny Edgell from the University of Minnesota.

The ASR elections have closed. We elected a President-Elect, Tricia Bruce, and three new Council members, Rebecca Catto, Jaime Kucinskas, and Sadia Saeed. The new President-Elect and Council members will begin their terms at the end of this year’s annual meeting and continue through the first Council meeting of 2026.
