Each spring the graduate students of the department of religion host an international graduate student symposium. Graduate students from all over the country and abroad travel to Tallahassee to participate in the weekend-long conference. At each symposium, a key-note address is delivered by a distinguished visitor and faculty members from the department serve as respondents for the various paper sessions.

The Florida State University Department of Religion is pleased to announce its 12th Annual Graduate Student Symposium to be held February 22-24, 2013 in Tallahassee, Florida.
Last year’s symposium was a huge success, allowing over 60 presenters from over 18 universities and departments as varied as History, Political Science, Philosophy, Psychology, and Classics to share their research, learn from one another, and meet many of their peers and future colleagues.
This year’s symposium will be centered on the theme “Politics of Religion.”
Keynote address by Dr. Aaron Hughes, "The Politics of Theory and Method," on February 22, 2013 at 6:30 p.m., Dodd Hall Auditorium.
Students from all fields with interdisciplinary interests in the study of religion and at all levels of graduate study will present their papers. Paper sessions will take place on Friday, February 22 from 4:00-6:00PM, Saturday, February 23 from 9:00AM-5:45PM, and Sunday, February 24 from 9:00AM-1:00PM. The full schedule will be posted soon.
Each presentation will be approximately 15 to 20 minutes in length and will receive faculty responses. In addition, every year respondents select the best graduate paper to receive the Leo F. Sandon Award, an endowed award named for the Religion Department's former chair.
Thank you for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you or your students and seeing you at the 2013 Graduate Student Symposium at Florida State University.
