About SORAAAD

SORAAAD at the University of Regina Religious Studies Department


Mission 

SORAAAD was created in 2011 as a means to further the reach of the best qualitative analytical work in the study of religion.   Our objective has been to function as both a workshop and a medium of scholarly exchange respecting critical and social theories, methodology, conceptualization and research design. Having served as SORAAAD’s primary sponsor since 2014, as of 2017,  The University of Regina Religion Department is now the official institutional center for SORAAAD’s activities. This alliance has been designed to sustain the innovation of research design, proliferate techniques, and further the immediate integration of findings into the training of graduate students and undergraduate curriculum.
