In light of the AAR becoming a member of the IAHR, participants may wish to consult the article as it traces the IAHR's commitments to the scientific study of religion, efforts toward better global representation, increasing the visibility of women scholars and the mitigation of Western-centric bias. Please also note the Marburg Declaration posted below.
The primary aims of ARS are to further scholarship by encouraging communication and collaboration among scholars from all disciplines interested in religion and society among adivasi people and to create greater visibility for adivasis and their religions and societies among scholars who study South Asian religions and indigenous religions as well as among humanists and social scientists more broadly. As an academic network, ARS is not a body for celebrating, intellectually developing, practicing, or promoting adivasi religions, although all of these activities are potential objects of analysis by Network members, and members may choose to engage in these activities on their own.
