Dear SSEA Religion and Spirituality Topic Network Members,


We wanted to remind you all to upload your own work and other seminal pieces to our shared google drive, as well as to solicit posts for our blog. For more information on these opportunities, see our website:


It is time to start planning for the 8th Conference on Emerging Adulthood, which will be held November 2-4, 2017 in Washington DC. Our topic network will be hosting a preconference on November 2nd at the Hyatt Regency Washington Capitol Hill from 12-5pm. Ofra Mayseless (University of Haifa) and Patricia Snell Herzog (University of Arkansas) will be chairing this preconference, and more information will be forthcoming. They are in the beginning stages of planning this preconference and welcome your suggestions as to topics and potential speakers. Please email Ofra directly with your suggestions:


In preparation for the main conference, we as co-chairs are reaching out to encourage you to submit to the conference, and to help organize either discussions or paper symposia (see call for submissions: related to religion and spirituality. It is our hope that we can connect scholars across the topic network who wouldn’t otherwise find each other. This should also help ensure that our topic network, and the very important work that our group is doing, is well represented at the conference. The deadline for submissions is 1 March 2017, but to get organized with a symposium or a discussion – takes time.


v  We suggest that you take advantage of this email and "reply to all" if you are interested in a discussion or joining a paper symposium on religion or spirituality. Let the members of the group know about your intentions or desires for presentation.


v  For discussions, a brief paragraph on the focus of the discussion would be helpful.


v  For paper symposium, a short (no more than a paragraph) description of what your talk would be, including key characteristics of your sample (e.g., age, ethnicity) and whether or not your analyses are finalized. If you have multiple potential presentations and are looking for one or two more labs to join you, you can describe each presentation separately.


We look forward to hearing from you!


Best wishes,


Carolyn Barry, Ofra Mayseless, & Meredith Hope
