The Center promotes a conversational model of intellectual activity, together thinking things through and thinking through things, to produce knowledge and to shape collaborative work. Conversations is a regularly updated, peer-reviewed online forum that is meant to supplement the Material Objects Archive, a growing database of material and visual objects activated in religious practices broadly conceived.

These Conversations take five forms—Object Narratives, Constellations, Medium Studies, Essays, and Interviews—and are updated regularly.

Scholars at all ranks of training and profession in related fields are encouraged to contribute to these Conversations. Before possible acceptance for publication on the site, submitted work undergoes peer-review by members of the Editorial Board. Please visit our Contribute page for more information.
