|Title:||Old Masters and New Allies: The way forward for Studies in Religion. [The AASR Presidential Address 2003.]||Contributor(s):||Franzmann, Majella Maria (author)||Publication Date:||2004||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1299||Abstract:||Last year in my Presidential Address I briefly plotted the waxing and waning fortunes of Studies in Religion in its history in the university, concluding with a suggestion for key alliances that would help Studies in Religion keep a place within the Australian university sector (Franzmann, 2002). In this final address of my presidency, I want to take up again a number of points from that earlier address, draw upon my own experience in teaching and research within Studies in Religion over nearly twenty years, and propose a possible way forward for Studies in Religion in Australia in its formal academic setting within the university and the secondary school sectors in particular. I shall plot a relatively simple way forward for Studies in Religion, supported by a claim that may seem touched with hubris - that Studies in Religion is unique within the disciplines which study religion within the context of human behaviours. From this position of uniqueness, I want to outline the alliances that will be positive for Studies in Religion into the future, and the processes by which such alliances might be strengthened.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Religion Studies Review, 17(1), p. 8-12||Publisher:||Australian Association for the Study of Religions||Place of Publication:||Australia||ISSN:||1031-2943||Field of Research (FOR):||220407 Studies in Religious Traditions (excl Eastern, Jewish, Christian and Islamic Traditions)||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://search.informit.com.au.ezproxy.une.edu.au/fullText;dn=200405451;res=APAFT||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 52
