Center for the Study of Information and Religion

 

The Center for the Study of Information and Religion (CSIR) is a research initiative of the School of Library and Information Science (SLIS).

CSIR was founded in 2009 with the goal of facilitating research on the various institutions and agents of religion and their effect on social knowledge through the use, dissemination and diffusion of information. CSIR hosts a symposium each fall semester and a conference in spring/summer.
