The African & Diasporic Religious Studies Association (ADRSA) is dedicated to supporting scholarship in African and Diasporic Religions. ADRSA is committed to scholarly and community exchange with a particular focus on bringing underrepresented voices to the fore.


ADRSA aims to:
  • Promote scholarly discourse on African and Diasporic Religions as practiced on the continent and throughout the Diaspora
  • Encourage the presentation and publication of research on African and Diasporic Religions, particularly in the field of Religious Studies and other disciplines where it has been historically underrepresented
  • Provide spaces in which professional bonds between scholars in varying disciplines and stages of research may commence and flourish
  • Build and maintain connections between scholars of African and Diasporic Religions and communities of practice
