About the group

Since its foundation in 1975, the Sociology of Religion Study Group has become one of the largest discipline study groups within the British Sociological Association (BSA).

The Study Group’s annual conferences attract a wide range of specialists and and non-specialists in contemporary religious issues and the sociology of religion. Conferences provide a forum not only for internationally renowned scholars in the field, but also increasingly for young academics and post-graduate students. A particular concern of the Study Group is to encourage younger members of the Group and to increase the profile of the Sociology of Religion within Sociology.
