The open-access website of the Center for the Study of Material and Visual Cultures of Religion offers many opportunities for scholarship and teaching as well as for broader public engagement. The website is an international, interdisciplinary, multigenerational collaboration, which hosts a scholarly born-digital double-blind peer-reviewed journal and a born-digital exhibition space. The website allows many different contribution types of varying lengths and encourages contributions about all religions and their material forms across time and space. It can accommodate audio and video and 360 panoramic forms, as well as still photography, and imagines audiences of teachers, civic groups, and religious communities, as well as scholars. This AAR workshop will combine presentations about creative uses of the website with “think session” opportunities to provide feedback about how the site might better address the needs of AAR members. MAVCOR is grateful for the support of Yale University and the Henry Luce Foundation.
