2012 Conference

ASREC held a successful 2012 meeting at Chapman University. The program brought together world experts in economics, religion and culture from across the social sciences to debate new research findings. The keynote colloquium featured a Q&A with four distinguished scholars from across the range of specialties within the field of economics and religion. They were Nobel Laureate Vernon Smith (Chapman University, ESI), Sriya Iyer (University of Cambridge), Laurence Iannaccone (Chapman University, IRES), and Roger Finke (Pennsylvania State University).
