Find an Expert on Virtually Any Aspect of Religion

Search by topic — get contact and expertise information


As a journalist you can use this free service of the American Academy of Religion for referrals to scholars with specific expertise in your news topics. Our more than 1,000 expertise categories include religion and politics, social issues, education, popular culture, ethics and more. We include scholars regardless of whether they’re AAR members. Most, but not all, live or work in North America. The AAR neither endorses nor rejects any religious belief or practice. The referral service is supported by The Pew Charitable Trusts. Use is restricted to journalists and other authorized users. Your searches are confidential. Search the database by first signing in below, or contact us instead for personal service.
