The 2014 CESNUR conference will take place from 4th to 7th June at Baylor University, Waco (Texas). It will be hosted by the Institute for Studies on Religion. This year's theme will be: "The Vitality of New Religions: Thinking Globally, Existing Locally".
The conference will begin on Wednesday evening with a reception and opening session, introducing Waco and Texas’ history of new religions which reaches back to Sam Houston and the founders of the Texas Republic. Conference sessions will run through the day on Thursday and Friday, through Saturday morning. Saturday afternoon will be a time for a local tour, which will focus on the Homestead Heritage community north of Waco, and will also provide for an optional visit to the Branch Davidian site.
More information can be found on the CESNUR's website: www.cesnur.org.
