About Our Portal_Site

At the 2017 American Academy of Religion Annual Meeting, a Refugee Portal is available on the mornings of Nov 18 and 19 to enable members of Steering Committees of topically relevant AAR Program Units and other specifically invited participants to engage in small-group video conferences with refugees and forced migrants from Iraq and Syria who live abroad.

This website is for invited participants to schedule their time to participate. As a participant, you must arrive 30 minutes in advance of the appointment time scheduled, so that prior to your appointment you can get to know the other AAR people who will be participating with you and can be briefed on conversation protocol. The (heated) Portal will be located just outside the Sheraton Boston hotel. Schedule an appointment only if know that you can honor your appointment and arrive on time.     

For more information, contact Steve Herrick, AAR Director of Educational Programming at sherrick@aarweb.org.
