Asian Pacific Americans and Religion Research Initiative
APARRI is the largest interdisciplinary conference series in the United States addressing issues of religion in Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. The gatherings bring educators and students from the social sciences, the humanities, and the theological disciplines together with leaders of faith communities to share current scholarship and build networks. Multi-ethnic and inter-religious, APARRI fosters perspectives which emphasize intersecting histories and shared contemporary civic concerns.
The 2010 annual meeting of the Asian Pacific American Religions Research Initiative will be held at McCormick Theological Seminary this year.
Theme: “Bridging Yesterday and Tomorrow: Memory and Generational Change in Religious Pacific and Asian North America”
